  1. Maternal and child health indicators in a rural South African health district.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To measure important maternal and child health indicators in a rural health district as part of the process of developing a comprehensive district health information system.

    Design

    A modified Expanded Programme on Immunisation cluster sample survey.

    Setting

    Hlabisa health district, KwaZulu-Natal.

    Participants

    480 mothers (or carers) of children aged 12 - 35 months surveyed in 32 clusters.

    Interventions

    A questionnaire was administered and Road-to-Health cards were examined.

    Main outcome measures

    Proportion of women receiving antenatal care and delivering in a health facility ; knowledge and understanding of vaccination ; and recall of vaccination history.

    Proportion of children with a Road-to-Health card, overall coverage of each vaccine, coverage at 12 months of age and proportion receiving an immunogenic dose.

    Results

    Most mothers (91%) had attended antenatal care, 77% had received tetanus toxoid and 83% delivered in a health facility.

    Only 14 children (3%) had never received a Road-to-Health card and 73% had one available at the time of the survey.

    Overall immunisation coverage was high (80 - 98%), as was the proportion receiving an immunogenic dose of each vaccine (78 - 98%). However, only 76% had received all the vaccines due to a 12-month-old child, and only 88% of these had received all doses by 12 months of age.

    Conclusions
