Quality pregnancy and birth care is crucial in reducing maternal and child mortality in Egypt, requiring both supply and demand interventions. Using data from the Egypt Demographic Health Survey 2014, a neural networks and logistic regression models were built to determine demographic, social, and economic determinants affecting mothers access to care during childbirth. The study found that mothers working status had a significant impact on access to care, with an inverse relationship. Logistic regression outperformed neural networks in analyzing the relationship between explanatory variables and mothers access to care during childbirth.
