Table 6 ACT availability and distance to source per sub-location

From: Factors associated with non-adherence to Artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) to malaria in a rural population from holoendemic region of western Kenya

  Availability at source Distance to source
Sub-location Yes No P‐value ≤ 30 minutes >30 minutes P‐value
Masumbi 45 (55.6 %) 36 (44.4 %)   27 (33.3 %) 81 (66.7 %)  
Nyang’oma Kogelo 17 (31.5 %) 37 (68.5 %)   34 (63.0 %) 20 (37.0 %)  
Mur Ng’iya 31 (41.9 %) 43 (58.1 %) 0.020 26 (35.1 %) 48 (64.9 %) 0.001
Bar Agulu 47 (53.4 %) 41 (46.6 %)   46 (52.3 %) 42 (47.7 %)  
Total 140 (47.1 %) 157 (52.9 %)   133 (44.8 %) 191 (55.2 %)  
  1. Legend: From the above results, distance to source and availability at source was significantly different across the sub-locations. aStatistical significance determined by Chi-square tests. P-value is significant at P ≤ 0.050.
