The Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2013 reported an infant mortality of 69 per 1,000 live births and an under-five mortality of 128 per 1,000 live births in the preceding five-year period. Our primary focus is on Northern Nigeria with covering places like Madala - Niger State, Abuja-FCT, Kujipi - Nasarawa State, and Ancha - Kaduna State. Other communities focused on are communities in the troubled North East Nigeria, but with this region, data figure changes rapidly and thus we may not get accurate data. Interviews were conducted, test results were analysed to determine access and use health facilities and ease of use and the quality of services provided in the visited medical facilities.
