dc.description.abstract This paper studies the factors influencing the demand for ante-natal care in two of Nairobi's slum areas, namely, Kibera and Mathare. Antenatal care is important as its absence I underprovision means higher incidences of both maternal and infant mortalities. On the other hand proper ante-natal care means improved well-being of both mother and child. These two groups constitute over 70% of Kenya's population. For any economic and social development programmes to succeed, there is need to give mother and child special attention. The factors influencing the demand for ante-natal care could be grouped into three major categories; socio-economic (age, marital status, income etc.), facility (quality of care) as well as policy (user-fee) variables. The data for the analysis was obtained by means of a household survey conducted in Kibera and Mathare. A two stage sampling procedure was used for the data collection. This involved first, listing of all clusters from which a random selection of clusters to be studied was done and secondly, the households were drawn by a random sample within each of the selected clusters. en_ZA
