Abstract: Introduction: Evidence suggests a substantial unsatisfied demand for LAPMs in sub-Saharan Africa. A discrepancy exists between the proportion of women who wish to stop having children (unsatisfied demand) and the proportion who are using LAPM (satisfied demand); however, there is limited evidence to show demand for LAPMs and associated factors in Ethiopia. Objective: The objective of this study was to assess demand for long acting and permanent contraceptive methods and associated factors among women of age group 18-49 years in Batu town, East shoa Zone, Ethiopia. Methodology: A facility based cross sectional survey was conducted in six service delivery points from March to April 2009 on 398 women of age 18-49 in East Shoa zone Batu town. Quick Investigation of Quality (QIQ) approach with a little modification was used. By using well-structured questionnaire and comprehensive checklists client exit interview, observation of client provider interaction and facility audit were carried out. Results: Among 398 women of the study participant only 13(3%) were currently using LAMPs and 89(22.4%) wants no more child in the future, this makes the total demand to be 24.4%. Some factors in this study were significantly associated with demand for LAMPs like: Age, number of children (parity), the provider ask about reproductive intention, and the provider explained side effects of method selected (p-value <0.05). Conclusion and Recommendation: The findings of this study demonstrated that there was a big gap between the satisfied and unsatisfied demand and also the total demand was higher. In addition to that there were several aspects of socio demographic and family planning service quality related factors found to be significantly associated with demand for LAPMs. So that multi dimensional measures are needed to improve the quality of family planning services, and efforts are needed to meet the unsatisfied demand.
