  1. Changes in use of health services in a rural health zone in Zaire.

    Article - En anglais

    As part of the Combatting Childhood Communicable Diseases (CCCD) project funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the Zairian CCCD programme conducted surveys in the rural health zones of Kingandu and Pai-Kongila, Zaire, in 1984-1985 and 1988-1989 to determine whether a strategy of selective primary health care would affect childhood mortality.

    This paper describes the changes in the medical care infrastructure and the increasing coverage of selected services.

    The strategies evaluated were vaccination, oral rehydration therapy, and treatment of febrile episodes with antimalarial drugs for children; and tetanus vaccination and malaria prophylaxis for pregnant women.
