|Abstract:||This paper investigates the factors that influence the utilisation of primary health care in Benin City. Using visitation as the demand variable (i.e. the dependent variable), the independent variables are; sex, age, education, income, distance to facility, transport cost, means of transport, and religion. The results of the multiple regression show that the variables that are significant in the utilisation of primary health care are: travel distance (-.303), means of transport (.193), age (-0.176) and sex (0.157). Income (0.014), religion (.031) education (0.034), and transport cost (0.035) do not make any significant contributions to utilisation in this study. This paper therefore recommends lowering the barrier of distance to PHC|
