Lack of access to Primary Health Care services has consistently posed serious health risks in Nigeria, especially in rural areas, where health facilities are largely inadequate or absent in extreme cases. This study examined the socio-cultural factors affecting access to PHC services and child mortality in Orumba North LGA of Anambra State. This cross-sectional survey research was conducted to generate data to answer the research questions as well as test the hypothesis.
