Malaria increased the risk of stunting and wasting among young children in Ethiopia: Results of a cohort study
(Public Library of Science, 2018-01-11)
Introduction: Given the high prevalence of malnutrition in a malaria-endemic setting, improving nutritional status could serve as a tool to prevent malaria. However, the relationship between the two conditions remains ...
Spatial heterogeneity and risk factors for stunting among children under age five in Ethiopia: A Bayesian geo-statistical model
Background: Understanding the spatial distribution of stunting and underlying factors operating at meso-scale is of paramount importance for intervention designing and implementations. Yet, little is known about the spatial ...
Anaemia among children in a drought affected community in south-central Ethiopia
(Public Library of Science, 2017-03-14)
Introduction: As part of a field trial (PACTR201411000882128) to provide evidence on the combined use of long-lasting insecticidal nets and indoor residual spray for malaria prevention, we measured haemoglobin values among ...
Comparison of two adult mosquito sampling methods with human landing catches in south-central Ethiopia
(BioMed Central, 2017-01-13)
Background: The human landing catch (HLC) is the standard reference method for measuring human exposure to mosquito bites. However, HLC is labour-intensive, exposes collectors to infectious mosquito bites and is subjected ...
Low case notification rates of childhood tuberculosis in southern Ethiopia
(BioMed Central, 2015-10-01)
Background: Childhood tuberculosis (TB) is a public health concern causing considerable mortality. However, control of childhood TB receives little attention. The control efforts could be inadequate because of challenges ...
Local spatial clustering of stunting and wasting among children under the age of 5 years: implications for intervention strategies
(Cambridge University Press, 2016-06)
Objective: The present study aimed to evaluate the clustering of undernutrition indicators of children under the age of 5 years in relation to different scales. Design: A community-based cross-sectional study design was ...
Climate change, crop production and child under nutrition in Ethiopia; a longitudinal panel study
(BioMed Central, 2014-08-27)
Background: The amount and distribution of rainfall and temperature influences household food availability, thus increasing the risk of child under nutrition. However, few studies examined the local spatial variability and ...
Ownership and use of long-lasting insecticidal nets for malaria prevention in Butajira area, south-central Ethiopia: complex samples data analysis
(BioMed Central, 2014-01-31)
Background: Despite the encroaching of endemic malaria to highland-fringe areas above 2000 meters above sea level in Ethiopia, there is limited information on ownership and use of mosquito nets for malaria prevention. ...
Evaluation of CareStart (TM) malaria Pf/Pv combo test for Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax malaria diagnosis in Butajira area, south-central Ethiopia
(BioMed Central, 2013-06-27)
Malaria is a major public health problem in Ethiopia. Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax co-exist and malaria rapid diagnostic test (RDTs) is vital in rendering parasite-confirmed treatment especially in areas ...
