Idoko, Chinedu Arthur; Idoko, Chinelo Ifeoma & Chidolue, Ikechukwu Christian


Background: Health Education on reproductive health issues is indispensible in fostering safe sexual and reproductive health more so in rural populations. This study aimed at reflecting the role of health education in improvement of attitude of women to reproductive health in a rural Nigerian Local Government (LG).
Methods: There was a pre-intervention, intervention and post-intervention stages in this cross-sectional study. Baseline data was collected from study and control groups after which health education was only administered to study group. Post-intervention data was collected thereafter. Chi-square Test was used to test for any significant differences while multiple regression analysis was done for factors affecting reproductive health.
Results: We found a statistically significant increase in parameters relating to study respondents’ attitude to reproductive health post intervention, (p = 0.000 for condoms use and concern about risk of STIs). This was not same for the control group.
Conclusion: A significant number of women proved a better and positive attitude to reproductive health after intervention such as improved use of condoms to evade risks associated with unprotected sex, concern about risk of HIV and STIs
