  1. The pattern of morbidity and its effects on productivity of factory workers in Kenya.

    Article - En anglais

    A retrospective study was carried out from January to September 1990 in a factory that manufactures textiles in Eldoret, Kenya.

    Over the study period, 1400 factory workers had 303 episodes of illness resulting in a loss of 710 productive man-days.

    This is an incidence of 189 episodes of illness per 1000 workers per year.

    On average, each episode of illness resulted in 1.4 man-days loss.

    Of all the episodes of illness, 58.8% were attributable to infective and parasitic diseases, 10.9% to respiratory system disorders and 11.7% to other conditions.
