Background & Aim: Because of extension of health services and comprehensive receivers, the need for health services management is inevitable. Despite the availability of health care services, people do not embrace the full range of these services. This study was conducted to determine the reasons for unwillingness to use health care services presented to age group under 9 years from perspective of health workers in Qom province, during 2013.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was done to evaluate the perspective of health personals about services that presented to population with age group less than 9 years. This study was done with a questionnaire as a matrix evaluation of health services. Data were analyzed by Spss 15 Software. Chi square test were used for the evaluation of the hypothesis.

Results: The main reasons for the lack of interest to receive the health care services from perspective of health workers were: lack of health knowledge in recipients of services, inadequate information, poor methods of health care delivery, quality of health care and unsuitable access to health care.

Conclusion: To encourage people to get the health care services provided at health centers in Qom province should hold training meetings, to enhance the knowledge of health care recipients. About presentation of services and methods of service delivery in health centers, we should give enough knowledge to people. Also we should try to promote the level of services, while people motivate to get the services.
