  1. Infant and child mortality estimates in two counties of Liberia : 1984.

    Article - En anglais

    To estimate baseline infant and child mortality in Liberia, a survey was carried out in 1984 as part of the Combatting Childhood Communicable Diseases (CCCD) project.

    The project, a collaborative effort of the Liberian Ministry of Health, the US Agency for International Development, and the US Centers for Disease Control, is aimed at reducing childhood morbidity and mortality through oral rehydration therapy, vaccination and treatment for malaria.

    As a measure of programme impact, mortality estimates from this survey will be compared with those from a second survey after 4-5 years.

    A sample of 40 clusters (50-70 households per cluster) was used.

    The size is sufficient to detect a 25% reduction in mortality of children under 5 years of age.
