  1. Mortality and use of health services surveys in rural Zaire.

    Article - En anglais

    The Combatting Childhood Communicable Disease (CCCD) project is a comprehensive public health programme designed to reduce child mortality by 25% through the use of the following strategies: vaccination, oral rehydration therapy, and prompt treatment for malaria.

    To evaluate this programme, cross-sectional surveys were conducted in neighbouring health zones in Zaire in 1984 to determine the use of selected medical services by the population and to estimate the child mortality rate before the CCCD programme began.

    A reinterview survey was conducted on a subsample of women previously interviewed to determine the reliability of the mortality estimates.
