The study sought to investigate factors that influence households to choose a health-care facility from among the three groups of health-care facilities in South Africa, which include public health-care facilities, private healthcare facilities, and traditional healthcare centers. Multinomial logistic regression was employed in the analysis. The study found that the most widely used facilities were public health-care facilities, followed by private health-care facilities and, lastly, traditional health facilities. Using the traditional health facilities as a reference category, the results from the multinomial logit model indicate that the sex of the household head, net household income per month in Rand, and grants as a source of income were the significant variables influencing households to choose public health institutions over other healthcare facilities. On the other hand, the variables that were significant in influencing households to choose private health-care institutions were the age of household head, net household income per month in Rand, access to grants, access to income from salaries/wages/commission, and access to pensions. Based on the findings of this study, it is recommended that there should be more investment in the public health institutions in South Africa due to the high figures of households using public healthcare, which was approximately above 70 percent.
