Introduction: Birth is a critical time for the health of the mother and newborn; and place of delivery is a crucial factor for the wellbeing of both. Ethiopia is a major contributor to the worldwide death tax of mothers with a maternal mortality ratio of 412 per 100,000 live. Therefore institutional delivery has paramount importance to get skilled care throughout pregnancy from inception to postnatal care. But in the Amhara region, only 27% of mothers gave birth at the health facility. The objective of the study is to assess determinants of home delivery among childbearing age women in Gondar Zuria district of central Gondar, Ethiopia. The study duration was from January 1 to February 30 2020.
