Abstract: This study examines the geospatial variation in the distribution of Primary Health Care Centres (PHC) in Benin City. Questionnaire survey based on random sampling technique is employed. Nearest neighbour statistic, location quotient and accessibility index were computed. The findings indicate that the distribution pattern of PHC in each of the three local government areas of the study areais dispersed. The most accessible PHC facilities in Benin City are those in Oredo and the least accessible is Ologbo PHC. The study reveals the lack of PHC facilities in some settlements in the study area, and hence the need for more PHC and more equitable distribution.There is also the need to recruit more manpower. medicines and equipment should be procured for the proper functioning of the PHC facilities in the City
