  1. Are reminder stickers effective in reducing immunization dropout rates in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia ?

    Article - En anglais

    A field trial to assess the effectiveness of a reminder sticker in reducing immunization dropout rates was conducted in two districts of Addis Ababa between 14 October 1991 and 31 January 1992.

    A total of 703 children were entered into the study.

    The study population was randomly divided into intervention and control groups.

    The intervention group received a reminder sticker and the control group did not.

    All other services were identical.

    A baseline interview documented the socio-demographic and maternal characteristics potentially related to immunization services utilization and revealed no statistically significant differences between the two groups.

    The dropout rates were 7.3 and 13.3% in the intervention and control groups respectively.
