Determinants of night blindness in Bangladesh.
A cross-sectional study was conducted to evaluate the effect of a community-based health education intervention programme and to study the determinants of night blindness in Bangladesh.
The intervention programme was implemented to reduce the morbidity of nutritional blindness (night blindness) in the northern part of Bangladesh (Ranipure district) during 1986-1989.
A baseline study in 1986 covered 2010 households with a total population of 11 600, and the evaluation study in 1989 covered 2011 households with a total population of 10 456.
Prevalence of night blindness was studied among children aged <9 years in these households.
