This project aims at analyzing the factors that contribute the accessibility of health services in Kigezi Sub-Region. The factors examined include age of the individual, sex, marital status, access to information about health facilities, kind of health facility, religion, occupation and level of education. Secondary data collected during the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey of 2016 was cleaned and used. The factors that had a significant impact on access to health services in the sub-region included occupation, access to information, sex and marital status. This was done using multivariate analysis. Non-Government Organizations in conjunction with the government are recommended to sensitize the people of Kigezi more about the benefits of utilizing health services through various communication channels such as radio stations and fliers. However, it should be noted that not all data relevant to this topic such as the respondents’ income levels was collected during this survey which limited the number of variables that analysis could be carried out upon.
