In a rural population-based cohort study of approximately 500 Gambian children under five years old followed for one year, incidence of acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) was related to various risk factors including parental smoking and regular carriage on the mother's back while cooking, a proxy measure for exposure to smoke from cooking fires.
Two statistical analyses using a « child-weeks at risk » approach were carried out, including and excluding multiple disease episodes in the same child.
Weekly surveillance for ALRI found 75 episodes in 62 children.
