This study was undertaken with the aim of determining the factors that affect contraceptive non-use among women i.e; determine the effect of education, age, wealth, residence, religion and relationship status on contraceptive non- use with access to family planning messages, fertility intentions and number of children born as intervening variables. The study used data collected from the UDHS 2016 data set. Pearson chi square test was used to test the association between the independent and dependent variables. The results from the study revealed that age, religion, highest level of education, wealth residence had a significant effect on contraceptive non use while there was no significant difference in contraceptive use among the different relationship statuses. The study recommends that the government expends more efforts in educating the citizens since it is evident from the study that there is negative relationship between education and contraceptive non – use in Uganda , contraceptive sensitization programs and contraceptive distribution initiatives should target rural areas and Government should counter religious beliefs that push for non-use of contraception through sensitization.
