Results: Among 15 PHNS, only 15.8% subjects reported had used any one of these services listed. Immunization, health clinic and check-up, and health screening were the top 3 PHNS that most utilized. Reasons for not utilizing the PHNS were used to hospital visit, not familiar with PHNS and medical facilities in health centers not trustworthy. Significant predictors for PHNS utilization were age and residential location in predisposing domain, having been recommended for the service in enabling domain and number of comorbidities in needs domain. Those had used the services felt most satisfied with its accessibility and less satisfied with the affordability.
