Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the level of participation of maternal and child health promotion and factors affecting the participation of maternal and child health promotion among village health volunteers in lower-southern provinces. Methods: The participants, 348 village health volunteers were recruited by Multi-stage random sampling. The questionnaires consisted of 5 sections. The content validity of second to fifth sections confirmed by three experts: IOC, yielding values of 1, .96, 1 and .80 respectively. The reliability of the questionnaires was tested using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, yielding values of .97, .98, .98 and .96 respectively. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics
and stepwise multiple regression. Results: The level of maternal and child health promotion participation was moderate (M = 53.57, SD = 9.83). Considering factors affecting on participation of maternal and child health promotion, work motivation (ß = .405, p < .001) and social support (ß = .368, p < .001) could significantly predict 46.30% of maternal and child health promotion participation variance (Adjusted R2 =.463, p < .001). However, perceived self-efficacy could not predict participation of maternal and child health promotion among village health volunteers (ß = .040, p = .423). Conclusion: In order to drive maternal and child health care, village health volunteers should be motivated and received social support to be able to continually participation in the care of maternal and child health promotion.
