  1. Exposure to children and risk of active trachoma in Tanzanian women.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors surveyed the trachoma status of 515 women aged 18-60 years and 527 children aged 1 -7 years in the trachoma hyperendemic region of Kongwa, Tanzania, in 1989 to further describe the importance of exposure to young children as a risk factor for active trachoma in women.

    The women were identified as caretakers, who currently cared for children aged 1-7 years; noncaretakers, who lived with, but did not care for, children aged 1-7; or those without children aged 1-7 in the household.

    The age-adjusted odds ratios for active trachoma seemed to rise with greater exposure to young children, from 1.00 for women without such children, to 1.63 for noncaretakers and 2.43 for caretakers (trend test, p=0.08).
