The study investigated the socio-health impact of social corporate responsibility services of oil drilling companies on their host communities of Obirikom and Egi in Ogba clan in Ogba-Egbeme-Ndoni LGA. The study used 250 respondents, selected using stratified random sampling techniques: 100 respondents from each of the two communities, and 50 respondents from oil drilling companies operating in the communities: The Agip, and Total oil companies. Twelve-item self-structured questionnaire, titled Socio-Health Implications of Social Corporate Responsibility Services Questionnaire (SHISCRSQ) was utilized for data collection. Four research questions guided the study, and two hypotheses were postulated and tested at. 05 level of significance. The findings of the study showed that the oil drilling companies provided some social corporate responsibility services in the communities. They also revealed that social vices in the communities were significantly reduced due to the services. However, the study found out that the provision of the services by the companies had no significant impact on the health status of the people of the host communities. The study recommended among others that there should be aggressive public health awareness and education on access and utilization of available health facilities and services to improve health status of the people in communities.Pages: 211-215 | 364 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
