Risk factors for deaths in children under 5 years old in Bagamoyo district, Tanzania.
We conducted a population based case control study of deaths in children < 5 years old from Bagamoyo District, Tanzania, to evaluate factors associated with death, and factors associated with not utilizing Government health care system.
Six hundred and ten children who died between 1 July, 1986 and 30 June 1987 were enrolled as cases; 1 160 healthy control children were selected by multistage random cluster sampling.
Twenty-five percent of deaths were ascribed to pneumonia based on « verbal autopsy »; 39% of acute respiratory deaths occurred in children < 6 months of age.
