  1. Validation of the diagnosis of childhood morbidity using maternal health interviews.

    Article - En anglais

    The diagnosis of childhood illness by maternal health interview surveys is widely used to estimate the prevalence of childhood morbidity in developing countries.

    To determine the validity of interview-based diagnoses, and to define simple, sensitive and specific diagnostic algorithms, we compared symptoms and signs reported by mothers during structured interviews with physicians' diagnoses for 271 children on the Philippine island of Cebu.

    The 271 children had 318 physician diagnosed illnesses: 105 acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI), 121 diarrhoeas, 36 measles, 50 upper respiratory infections (URTI), 5 roseola infantums and one milaria rubria.
