Reducing maternal morbidity and mortality is a global priority which is particularly relevant to developing countries like Ethiopia. One of the key strategies for reducing maternal morbidity and mortality is increasing institutional delivery service utilization of mothers under the care of skilled birth attendants. Thus, this study was aimed at assessing factors affecting delivery service utilization among women who give birth during the period of two years in Arba Minch town. Community based cross sectional study was used and the required sample was 178. Study participants were selected using systemic sampling method from list of women who had given birth in the last two years in Arba Minch town. Detailed explanation and interpretation was made by presenting the data in the form of frequency, percentage using tables, graphs and odd ratio with 95% CI was calculated to see the association b/n the dependent & independent variable .A total of 168 women who gave delivery in the last two year prior to this study survey, were interviewed making a response rate of 94% and the prevalence of delivery service utilization was found to be 73.2%.NoneEducated women were 27% less likely utilize the delivery service then educated [OR, 0.733 95% CI=0.468-1.149]. Women who know the benefit of giving birth at HF were 44% more likely to utilize delivery service than [OR, 2.444 95% CI=1.728-3.458].the women who have Knowledge of complication of labour were 44% more likely to utilize delivery service than the women who have Knowledge of complication of labour [OR 1.444, 95% CI=1.728-3.458].
