dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to describe the clients' satisfaction with Primary Health Care (PHC) Services in Lilongwe Health District with regard to client involvement in health care delivery and the accessibility of PHC services. It was hoped that the information generated would be used in the evaluation of PHC Services in Lilongwe. A quantitative and qualitative research was done using an outcome analysis evaluation design. The study utilised Kawale and Chiwamba Health Centres and their catchment population. Systematic random sampling was used for the clients making use of the health centres, convenience sampling for those not using the health centres and purposive sampling for the focus group participants. Quantitative data was collected using self-administered questionnaires while qualitative data was collected using an interview guide in focus group sessions. Quantitative data was analysed using SPSS and percentages and frequencies were calculated while qualitative data was analysed through a template style of analysis. The findings of the study revealed that in both Health Centres Clients were satisfied with some aspects of PHC such as, cultural accessibility, health education and listening abilities of health workers but there was still some evidence of dissatisfaction, and misunderstanding of the concept of Community Involvement in Health care delivery. This calls for a need to reorient communities on PHC delivery and what it means.en
