Table 2 Three-level logistic regression of factors associated with PQ prescription during the second visit to HF

From: Factors associated with children’s health facility visits for primaquine treatment in rural Papua New Guinea

Variable OR (95% CI) p-value
Gender of patients (female = 0/male = 1) 1.23 [0.68, 2.23] 0.49
Age of patients (year) 1.05 [0.96, 1.15] 0.31
Age of caregivers (year) 1.03 [0.99, 1.06] 0.16
Educational level of caregivers (year) 1.02 [0.92, 1.14] 0.66
Marital status of caregivers (married = 1)
   Unmarried 1.08 [0.17, 6.88] 0.94
   Divorced/separated 1.78 [0.37, 8.52] 0.47
   Widowed 0.25 [0.03, 2.19] 0.21
Household size 0.92 [0.81, 1.04] 0.19
Wealth status (Lower = 1)
   Middle 0.82 [0.40, 1.68] 0.59
   Upper 0.73 [0.35, 1.52] 0.41
Transportation cost to HF (PNG Kina) 0.85 [0.77, 0.94] 0.002
Place of initial visit (VHV = 0/HF = 1) 1.94 [1.01, 3.71] 0.047
  1. Transportation cost to the HF (p = 0.002) and place of initial visit (p = 0.047) were significantly affected PQ prescription during the second visit to an HF. The significance level was p < 0.05
  2. VHV village health volunteer, HF health facility, OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval
