Abstract: Health services are one of the important basic amenities to be made available to achieve the goal of social development; poor health status of citizens in a country is an indication of the deprivation of basic services. Therefore, improving the health status of the people has been an important concern for human development. The health system has a vital role and continuing responsibility to people throughout the life span and is crucial to the healthy development of individuals, families and society (Nyazema, 2010). However, a number of factors influence access to health care services creating a major challenge providing the services. In addition to the limited availability of health-care professionals and resources in rural areas that often compound the problems relating to access and utilization of the health services (Sowell et al. 2003), economic, social, political, administrative, geographic and cultural factors all converge to influence the healthcare seeking behaviour of people and their access to health services (Krishna et al. 2006; STI, 2008).Use of public facilities by the rural masses, particularly the poor and the deprived, is dependent on the kind of facilities available locally that can be accessed easily (Srinivasan and Mohanty, 2004). At the same time, though availability and accessibility of the services are necessary factors, they are not sufficient to determine the utilization of the services. Particularly, in a conflict situation, the service-providers as well as the service- users are affected in a number of ways determined by location specific conditions within which the services are being provided and accessed. xii The effects of conflict on the health service include increased difficulty of attracting staff to work in periphereal areas, increased difficulty in gaining access to services (e.g. due to curfews), disruption of immunization campaigns, lack of supplies, including drugs and equipments, emigration of skilled health personnel and repression of health workers (Zwi and Ugalde, 1989).
