  1. Latrine ownership as a protective factor in inflammatory trachoma in Egypt.

    Article - En anglais

    We investigated the association between inflammatory trachoma in children aged 1-5 and environmental and sociodemographic risk factors in a rural Nile Delta hamlet.

    Inflammatory trachoma clustered in households, emphasising the child-to-child nature of transmission in the hamlet.

    Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed three factors predicting inflammatory trachoma in children: the absence of a latrine in the household, school-age siblings with inflammatory trachoma, and additional same-age siblings (with or without disease) in the household.

    In the Egyptian setting the presence of pit latrines in all houses, even when full and unscreened, might result in a reduction in trachoma prevalence in this population from the current 49% to 35%.
