The purpose of this paper was to identify factors associated with delivery outside a health facility in rural Malawi. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Balaka, Dedza, Mchinji and Ntcheu districts in Malawi in 2013 among women who had completed a pregnancy 12 months prior to the day of the survey. About 9% of women deliver outside a facility. Policies to encourage facility delivery should not only focus on health systems but also be multi sectoral to address women’s vulnerability and inequality.
