  1. Infant mortality and undernutrition in the squatter settlements of Karachi.

    Article - En anglais

    Sixty-eight per cent of those underweight were more than 6 months old.

    Age, female sex, birth interval <24 months, duration of breast feeding, adolescent mother, alive/dead status of the previous child were significant influences accounting for 12 per cent of the variance.

    Socio-economic status and health seeking behaviour were also important determinants, but not to the same extent as in the case of infant death.
