Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted among 234 healthcare workers. The data were collected using self-administered questionnaire and were analysed using SPSS version 23 at univariate, bivariate and multivariate levels. A P-value of <0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: Mean age of respondents was 35.6±7years. Those who are aged 31 - 45years constitute about three-fifth (60.6%) of the study population. Of the total studied participates, 128(60.1%) were male and 150(70.4%) were married. About two-fifth of the participants were nurses. 54.9% of the participants worked in tertiary health facility while more than half (52.6) had worked for than 10 years.
