  1. The Butajira Rural Health Project in Ethiopia : a nested case-referent (control) study of under-5 mortality and its health and behavioural determinants.

    Article - En anglais

    The associations between under-5 mortality and its health and behavioural determinants were investigated in a rural district of Ethiopia, by means of a concurrent case-referent technique nested within a study-base population established in 1987.

    Three-hundred and six infant and child deaths registered over a period of 1 year, were contrasted with 612 controls, matched for age, sex and study area.

    Data were collected by trained non-medical workers using a structured questionnaire.

    Breastfeeding and supplementary feeding came out as strongly protective against under-5 mortality, even when controlling for parental and environmental determinants.

    Early termination of breastfeeding was demonstrated to have a substantial impact on mortality, particularly on that caused by diarrhoea.
