Categorical classification of MENTAL DISORDERS based on criteria sets with defining features. It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association. (DSM-IV, page xxii)
A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)

Long-term morbidity and mortality following hypoxaemic lower respiratory tract infection in Gambian children. (1/373)

Acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) are the main cause of death in young children worldwide. We report here the results of a study to determine the long-term survival of children admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia. The study was conducted on 190 Gambian children admitted to hospital in 1992-94 for ALRI who survived to discharge. Of these, 83 children were hypoxaemic and were treated with oxygen, and 107 were not. On follow-up in 1996-97, 62% were traced. Of the children with hypoxaemia, 8 had died, compared with 4 of those without. The mortality rates were 4.8 and, 2.2 deaths per 100 child-years of follow-up for hypoxaemic and non-hypoxaemic children, respectively (P = 0.2). Mortality was higher for children who had been malnourished (Z-score < -2) when seen in hospital (rate ratio = 3.2; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.03-10.29; P = 0.045). Children with younger siblings experienced less frequent subsequent respiratory infections (rate ratio for further hospitalization with respiratory illness = 0.15; 95% CI = 0.04-0.50; P = 0.002). Children in Gambia who survive hospital admission with hypoxaemic pneumonia have a good prognosis. Survival depends more on nutritional status than on having been hypoxaemic. Investment in oxygen therapy appears justified, and efforts should be made to improve nutrition in malnourished children with pneumonia.  (+info)

Severity and timing of stunting in the first two years of life affect performance on cognitive tests in late childhood. (2/373)

Undernutrition in infancy and early childhood is thought to adversely affect cognitive development, although evidence of lasting effects is not well established. With the use of data from the Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Study, we assesshere the relationship between stunting in the first 2 y of life and later cognitive development, focusing on the significance of severity, timing and persistence of early stunting. The sample included > 2000 Filipino children administered a cognitive ability test at ages 8 and 11 y. Stunting status was determined on the basis of anthropometric data collected prospectively between birth and age 2 y. Children stunted between birth and age 2 y had significantly lower test scores than nonstunted children, especially when stunting was severe. The shortfall in test scores among children stunted in the first 2 y was strongly related to reduced schooling, which was the result of a substantial delay in initial enrollment as well as higher absenteeism and repetition of school years among stunted children. Interactions between stunting and schooling were not significant, indicating that stunted and nonstunted children benefitted similarly from additional schooling. After multivariate adjustment, severe stunting at age 2 y remained significantly associated with later deficits in cognitive ability. The timing of stunting was also related to test performance, largely because children stunted very early also tended to be severely stunted (chi(2) P = 0.000). Deficits in children's scores were smaller at age 11 y than at age 8 y, suggesting that adverse effects may decline over time. Results emphasize the need to prevent early stunting and to provide adequate schooling to disadvantaged children.  (+info)

Relationship between health services, socioeconomic variables and inadequate weight gain among Brazilian children. (3/373)

This ecological analysis assessed the relative contribution of behavioural, health services and socioeconomic variables to inadequate weight gain in infants (0-11 months) and children (12-23 months) in 140 municipalities in the State of Ceara, north-east Brazil. To assess the total effect of selected variables, we fitted three unique sets of multivariate linear regression models to the prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants and in children. The final predictive models included variables from the three sets. Findings showed that participation in growth monitoring and urbanization were inversely and significantly associated with the prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants, accounting for 38.3% of the variation. Female illiteracy rate, participation in growth monitoring and degree of urbanization were all positively associated with prevalence of inadequate weight gain in children. Together, these factors explained 25.6% of the variation. Our results suggest that efforts to reduce the average municipality-specific female illiteracy rate, in combination with participation in growth monitoring, may be effective in reducing municipality-level prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants and children in Ceara.  (+info)

Nutritional and health status of Tibetan children living at high altitudes. (4/373)

BACKGROUND: Children living at high altitudes often have delayed growth, but whether growth retardation is related to altitude or to other factors is not known. METHODS: A multicultural health care team assessed 2078 Tibetan children 0 to 84 months of age for anthropometric and clinical signs of malnutrition. The children lived in 11 counties, which contained more than 50 diverse urban and nonurban (nomadic, agricultural, or periurban) communities in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. The height and weight of the children were compared with those of U.S. children. Height and weight were expressed as z scores (the number of standard deviations from the median of the age- and sex-specific reference group). RESULTS: The mean z score for height fell from -0.5 to -1.6 in the first 12 months of life and generally ranged from -2.0 to -2.4 in older children. Overall, of 2078 children, 1067 (51 percent) had moderately or severely stunted growth, as defined by a z score of -2.0 or lower. Of the 1556 children 24 months of age or older, 871 (56 percent) had stunted growth, which was severe (z score, -3.0 or lower) in 380 (24 percent). Among the children in this age group, 787 of the 1313 nonurban children (60 percent) had stunting, as compared with 84 of the 243 urban children (35 percent). Stunting was associated with clinical conditions such as rickets, abdominal distention, hair depigmentation, and skin lesions and with a maternal history of hepatitis or goiter. Stunting was not associated with altitude, after adjustment for the type of community. CONCLUSIONS: In Tibetan children, severe stunting due to malnutrition occurs early in life, and morbidity is high.  (+info)

Retinol binding protein as a surrogate measure for serum retinol: studies in vitamin A-deficient children from the Republic of the Marshall Islands. (5/373)

BACKGROUND: Serum retinol is transported by retinol binding protein (RBP), which has one high-affinity binding site for retinol; consequently, the molar ratio of retinol to RBP in the circulation is approximately 1 to 1. In vitamin A deficiency (VAD), both serum retinol and RBP decline. However, the retinol-RBP relation has not been well studied in populations with a high incidence of severe VAD. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether RBP is a good surrogate for serum retinol at the very low retinol concentrations encountered in VAD. DESIGN: The stoichiometric relation between retinol and RBP was studied in 239 Marshallese children: 65 with severe VAD (< or = 0.35 micromol retinol/L), 94 with moderate VAD (0.36-0.70 micromol retinol/L), and 80 with vitamin A sufficiency (> 0.70 micromol retinol/L). RESULTS: Excellent correlation between retinol and RBP (r = 0.94) was observed across all retinol concentrations. Severe VAD was predicted with 96% sensitivity and 91% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.48 micromol/L, whereas moderate VAD was predicted with 87% sensitivity and 98% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.70 micromol/L. CONCLUSIONS: The use of RBP results in the classification of essentially the same children with VAD as does retinol, and RBP is an excellent surrogate for serum retinol. Considering the relative ease of measuring RBP with immunodiagnostic kits compared with that of serum retinol by HPLC, the use of RBP concentrations to assess VAD may be particularly advantageous in field settings. Consequently, measuring RBP concentrations may be a practical alternative to measuring serum retinol in population surveys assessing the prevalence of VAD.  (+info)

Introduction. Symposium: Obesity in developing countries: biological and ecological factors. (6/373)

Over the past decade there has been an increasing concern about the impact of chronic, noncommunicable diseases on the health of developing world populations. Traditionally, major causes of illness and death in developing countries have been linked to infectious diseases and undernutrition, and these are still major public health problems in several regions of the world. But recent projections indicate that in 20 y noncommunicable diseases will account for over 60% of the disease burden and mortality in the developing world. Obesity is recognized as an underlying risk factor for many of these chronic conditions. As in developed societies, the risk for obesity in developing countries is also strongly influenced by diet and lifestyle, which are changing dramatically as a result of the economic and nutrition transition. This symposium discusses key aspects of the phenomenon of obesity in the developing world and provides some specific examples from countries facing increasing prevalence of that condition.  (+info)

Early nutrition and later adiposity. (7/373)

The objective was to review whether nutrition during pregnancy and the first 3 y of life predisposes individuals to be fatter as adults. The roles of undernutrition, overnutrition and breastfeeding were considered. The evidence that poor nutrition in early life is a risk factor for increased fatness later in life is inconclusive. Overnutrition, as proxied by high birthweight or gestational diabetes, on the other hand, is associated with subsequent fatness. Two large, well-conducted studies in developed countries suggest that breastfeeding has a protective effect. Nutrition in early life has a demonstrable but small impact on adult obesity.  (+info)

Severe malnutrition among young children--Georgia, January 1997-June 1999. (8/373)

In October 1999, the Georgia Department of Human Resources (GDHR) was notified of two cases of severe malnutrition in toddlers. Both cases were associated with the use of commercial alternative milk. In response, GDHR and CDC reviewed Georgia hospital records to assess the frequency and cause of hospitalized cases of rickets and protein energy malnutrition (PEM). The findings of this review indicated that, although no new cases were associated with milk alternatives, three children had PEM and six had vitamin D deficiency rickets. The children with rickets had been breast fed for approximately 6 months while receiving no vitamin D supplementation. Rickets is preventable through the adequate intake of vitamin D. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is examining vitamin D supplementation among breast-fed infants.  (+info)

For years, malnutrition has been affecting 450,000 children from 0-5 years old in Angola. A malnourished child finds that their body has difficulty doing normal things such as growing and resisting disease. It becomes problematic to develop, even learning abilities can be diminished. If the food they eat does not provide the proper amounts of micronutrients, vitamins, proteins and minerals to meet daily nutritional requirements, they will become malnourished.

In Africa, two important agricultural research centres the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in Nigeria, and the French Conseil National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) have developed food supplements using a soya-bean base to be given to small children in the process of being weaned. Experiments have shown that these soya compounds provide a substitute which could replace milk. The objective is to supply children aged between 6 months and 2 years with a foodstuff both suited to their increased energy and protein requirements and tolerated by their digestive systems, since children cannot in fact break down the same foodstuffs as adults. In addition, the basic foodstuffs of families in the low-income group (ie maize flour, sorghum and cassava) provide the right quantities of food needed to satisfy a childs hunger, but not his protein requirements. The soya meal developed by the CNRS and IITA combines both maize flour and meal from shelled, improved soyabean, grounded ...

The study of more than 15,000 elderly people in China suggests that fighting hunger throughout childhood not only saves lives and improves health but also may enhance cognitive well-being in late life. The study appears in the journal Social Science & Medicine.. Across the world, 178 million children under age 5 are stunted or short in stature due to hunger, infection or both, said Zhenmei Zhang, MSU assistant professor of sociology and lead researcher on the project.. Its important for policymakers to know that investing in children really has long-term benefits, not only for those individuals but for society as a whole, Zhang said. For example, fighting childhood hunger can reduce future medical expenditures. Its very expensive for families and society to take care of people who suffer from dementia or cognitive impairment.. Zhang said researchers previously have focused on how childhood malnutrition affects physical health and mortality, with little attention devoted to the long-term, ...

The poorer nutrition in smoking families comes not only because they buy less food in total, but also because the food they buy tends to be of lower quality. The surveys show that, compared to non-smoking families, families with a smoker spend a larger budget share on rice and a smaller share on meats, fruits and vegetables, which are nutrient-rich, but more expensive.. Nearly 60 percent of Indonesian men smoke. Rates are similarly high-and increasing-in other developing Asian nations. Block and Webbs research suggests that these increasing rates pose a dual threat to developing nations. The combination of direct health threats from smoking coupled with the potential loss of [food] consumption among children linked to tobacco expenditure presents a development challenge of the highest order, the researchers conclude.

UNICEF estimated that in 2020 nearly 150 million children under five years of age were stunted and approximately 50 million were wasted, numbers that are expected to rise as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The distribution of malnourished children varies between and within countries but the prevalence is highest among children in Asia. It now seems likely that the 2025 Global Nutrition Targets will not be met so millions of children will continue to experience the unacceptable consequences of undernutrition: many will die while the physical and mental development of the survivors will be impaired. The 16 million children who are both stunted and wasted are at particular risk. Considerable attention has been given to stunting prevention including, most recently, the exemplar series in which an analysis of countries that have made good progress in reducing the prevalence of stunted children was conducted to learn lessons about what works in stunting prevention. However, far less attention has ...

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com. Basically babies and children do have immunity that is not as strong as adults. This causes children to be very susceptible to infections, especially viral infections in the respiratory tract and digestive tract. Research shows that babies and toddlers can get viral infections in the respiratory tract up to 7-8 times a year. There are many factors that can affect a childs health, including:. child nutrition, whether the childs nutrition properly fulfilled or ...

Parents are important role models in their childrens nutrition. When children are exposed to novel flavors prenatally via amniotic fluid or during infancy via breast milk, the acceptance of those particular flavors is highly increased. Therefore, it is imperative that parents have healthy dietary habits if they expect their children to learn how to make nutritious…
Taipei, Jan. 28 (CNA) The scourge of child malnutrition in several remote communities in the central Philippines is gradually improving after local families received training on how to prepare nutritious diets as part of a 17-month program funded by the Taiwan government.. The Integrated Action for Child Nutrition Project, funded by Taiwans International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF) and executed by World Vision Philippines, was implemented from September 2018 to Jan. 15, 2020.. Under the project, which had a budget of US$300,000, a total of 2,920 parents and caregivers from more than 30 villages in the central Philippine provinces of Leyte and Samar received training on proper dietary and breast-feeding practices, according to ICDF, a development aid agency founded by Taiwans foreign ministry.. In addition, underweight children received special help and three health facilities were either constructed or repaired, it said.. The issue of child malnutrition caught my attention when I ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new treatment guidelines for children under-five who have severe acute malnutrition.. Close to 20 million children worldwide are suffering from the condition. Severe acute malnutrition is when children suffer severe wasting that may or may not be accompanied by swelling of the body from fluid retention.. Now, children with no evident medical complications can be effectively treated at home with specially-formulated foods that provide energy and nutrients and antibiotic medicines.. Dr Francesco Branca is the Director of WHOs Department of Nutrition for Health and Development.. Now we have some high energy foods which can be consumed in the community. So the community management of acute malnutrition actually helped reduce dramatically mortality for severe acute malnutrition. So that is probably the main element now reflecting in this …. is a new way to treat children with new tools. But also some better understanding and approaches to treating ...
Objective: To determine whether paternal smoking is associated with an increased risk of child malnutrition among families in rural Indonesia.. Methods: The relation between paternal smoking and child malnutrition was examined in a population-based sample of 438 336 households in the Indonesia Nutrition and Health Surveillance System, 2000-2003. Main outcome measures were child underweight (weight-for-age Z score ,−2) and stunting (height-for-age Z score ,−2) and severe underweight and severe stunting, defined by respective Z scores ,−3, for children aged 0-59 months of age.. Results: The prevalence of paternal smoking was 73.7%. The prevalence of underweight and stunting was 29.4% and 31.4%, and of severe underweight and severe stunting was 5.2%, and 9.1%, respectively. After adjusting for child gender, child age, maternal age, maternal education, weekly per capita household expenditure and province, paternal smoking was associated with an increased risk of underweight (odds ratio (OR) ...
1. In order to achieve early identification of children with severe acute malnutrition in the community, trained community health workers and community members should measure the mid-upper arm circumference of infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and examine them for bilateral pitting oedema. Infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and have a mid-upper arm circumference ,115 mm, or who have any degree of bilateral oedema should be immediately referred for full assessment at a treatment centre for the management of severe acute malnutrition.. 2. In primary health-care facilities and hospitals, health-care workers should assess the mid-upper arm circumference or the weight-for-height/weight-for-length status of infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and also examine them for bilateral oedema. Infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and have a mid-upper arm circumference ,115 mm or a weight-for-height/length ,-3 Z-scores of the WHO growth standards, or have ...
Adequate nutrition is essential in early childhood to ensure healthy growth, proper organ formation and function, a strong immune system, and neurological and cognitive development. Child malnutrition - as measured by poor child growth - is an important indicator for monitoring population nutritional status and health. In 2013, about 17%, or 98 million children under five years of age in developing countries were underweight (low weight-for-age according to the WHO child growth standards). Underweight prevalence is highest in the United Nation (UN) region of Southern Asia (30%), followed by Western Africa (21%), Oceania and Eastern Africa (both 19%) and South-Eastern Asia and Middle Africa (both 16%), and Southern Africa 12%. Prevalence below 10% for 2013 is estimated for the UN regions of Eastern, Central and Western Asia, Northern Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean. Childhood malnutrition, including fetal growth restriction, suboptimum breastfeeding, stunting, wasting and Vitamin A and zinc
Downloadable! In Burkina Faso, the analysis of the impact of the regional urbanization in terms of child malnutrition of less than 5 years, based on a spatial econometrics approach according tothe administrative division of the 30 provinces, using the demographic and health surveys of 1992-93 and 1998-99, arrives at three conclusions. Firstly, the urbanization is accompanied, on the one hand, of a reduction of the levels of wasting, underweight and stunting - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization generates a reduction from 5,2 to 5,8 percent of the rate of child malnutrition of less than 5 years -, and,on the other hand, of a rise in the inequality of child malnutrition, expressed by the relationsweight for age and height for age - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization implies a rise of about 30 percent in the inequality indicators of child malnutrition, except wasting. In addition, if the level of stunting increased between 1992-93 and 1998-99, the econometric estimates do not
BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Child malnutrition cost the Philippines $7 billion or nearly 3 percent of its GDP in one year in terms of education spending and lost productivity, while hunger-related stunting is on the rise among children, a global aid agency said on Tuesday.. A report by Save the Children found that the combined losses, calculated with data from 2013, are more than triple the cost of damage inflicted by 15 natural disasters that hit the Southeast Asian country last year.. Stunting costs are a drag on the economy and impacts all of us, not just the child and the family. It keeps the Filipino economy poorer by 3 percent. If you add that up over time - its an anchor to progress, said Ned Olney, head of Save the Children in the Philippines, by Skype from Manila.. Stunting is defined as low height-for-age and is measured by comparing the height of a child against the international benchmark for a child of the same age.. Caused by a poor diet in a childs first 1,000 days ...
Background: Evaluation of nutrition programs is essential to guarantee the effectiveness of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). Methods: The Rainbow Project Supplementary Feeding Programs (SFPs) in Zambia were evaluated between years 2015-17, following implementation of new recommendations based on previous evaluations (years 2012-14). Outcomes of the program were compared with International Standards and with those of 2012-14. Cox proportional risk regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of mortality and defaulting. Results: Data for 900 under age 5 years malnourished children (48.8% male; mean age 19.7months ±9.9) were analyzed. Rainbow 2015-17 program outcomes met International Standards, for general malnutrition or stratified moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and severe acute malnutrition (SAM). When comparing with 2012-14 outcomes, better performance was noted: mortality rates were reduced by half (5.6% vs 3.1%, p = 0.01; for SAM: 12.4% vs 6.7%, p = 0
First Lady, Dr. Mrs. Aisha Buhari, on Monday called on the manufacturers of drugs and food/beverages companies to a make commitment of producing the Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) locally in Nigeria.. Dr. Aisha said it would make the RUTF more accessible everywhere in a bid to finally end Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) in the country.. She made the call during an interactive session at the State House, organized by the Aisha Buhari Foundation (ABF).. Aisha Buhari called on the Federal and State Governments to ensure, through the enactment and operationalization of policies, that they provide support to local production and procurement of RUFT in Nigeria.. She noted that it is time for Nigeria to end the scourge of Severe Acute Malnutrition in Nigeria by ensuring that RUTF is available in the shelves of every pharmaceutical store.. She finally called on all stakeholders to work towards meeting up with standards that demonstrate the Nations resourcefulness as a people and its natural ...
In developing countries, about 26 million children under age 5 suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The odds of mortality from any disease are nine times higher for children with SAM as comparing with their well-nourished peers. The management of SAM was previously restricted to hospital-based treatment, but the Outpatient Therapeutic feeding Program (OTP) and ready-to-use therapeutic foods have brought SAM management closer to the community.. Yebyo et al. conducted a retrospective cohort study in Ethiopia on 628 children who were treated for SAM in the OTP from 2008 to 2012. The authors used the demographic, anthropometric, disease, medication, and therapeutic feeding data to explore program outcomes and determinants of the childrens recovery rate. Upon admission to OTP, children received a weekly PlumpyNut (ready-to-use therapeutic food) ration according to their body weight. They were also supposed to receive a routine treatment regimen including Vitamin A, folic acid, antibiotics, ...
Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) affects approximately 13 million children under-five and is associated with over 1.5 million preventable child deaths each year. Case fatality rates in hospitals treating SAM remain at 20-30%, and coverage of those affected remains low. Training and support to improve centre-based management can reduce case fatality rates. However, an exclusive inpatient approach does not consider the many barriers to accessing treatment that exist for poor people in the developing world. Community-based therapeutic care (CTC) is a new approach for the management of SAM that uses Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) and triage to refer cases without complications to outpatient care and those with complications to inpatient treatment. This thesis aims to test the hypotheses that a CTC strategy can treat children with SAM effectively and can achieve better population treatment coverage than a centre-based approach. Five studies, using primary data, are presented. The first 3 ...
Background: Malnutrition is of major public health concern worldwide. The prevalence of severe acute malnutrition/wasting is increasing nationally and..
Risk factors of acute malnutrition in Bangladesh are well documented. However, due to regional variations in prevalence of acute malnutrition, it is important to explore the risk factors specific to the region, for designing and implementing public health interventions. A mixed-method matched case-control study was conducted in the Kurigram district of Bangladesh. Community perspectives on causes of acute malnutrition were collected from 75 purposively selected caregivers through interviews, focus group discussions and informal group discussions. The data was analysed manually by coding and sub-coding according to different themes. Caregivers of 52 malnourished and 95 well-nourished children matched in age group and sex with the malnourished children, were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. The conditional logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the risk factors of acute malnutrition. Caregivers perceived inappropriate feeding practice as a major cause of acute malnutrition
BACKGROUND: Diarrhea affects a large proportion of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM). However, its etiology and clinical consequences remain unclear. OBJECTIVE: We investigated diarrhea, enteropathogens, and systemic and intestinal inflammation for their interrelation and their associations with mortality in children with SAM. DESIGN: Intestinal pathogens (n = 15), cytokines (n = 29), fecal calprotectin, and the short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) butyrate and propionate were determined in children aged 6-59 mo (n = 79) hospitalized in Malawi for complicated SAM. The relation between variables, diarrhea, and death was assessed with partial least squares (PLS) path modeling. RESULTS: Fatal subjects (n = 14; 18%) were younger (mean +/- SD age: 17 +/- 11 compared with 25 +/- 11 mo; P = 0.01) with higher prevalence of diarrhea (46% compared with 18%, P = 0.03). Intestinal pathogens Shigella (36%), Giardia (33%), and Campylobacter (30%) predominated, but their presence was not associated with ...
Poor health and malnutrition in preschool children are longstanding problems in Bangladesh. Gut microbiota plays a tremendous role in nutrient absorption and determining the state of health. In this study, metagenomic tool was employed to assess the gut microbiota composition of healthy and malnourished children. DNA was extracted from fecal samples of seven healthy and seven malnourished children (n = 14; age 2-3 years) were analyzed for the variable region of 16S rRNA genes by universal primer PCR followed by high-throughput 454 parallel sequencing to identify the bacterial phyla and genera. Our results reveal that the healthy children had a significantly higher number of operational taxonomic unit in their gut than that of the malnourished children (healthy vs. malnourished: 546 vs. 310). In malnourished children, bacterial population of the phyla Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes accounted for 46 and 18%, respectively. Conversely, in healthy children, Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes accounted for 5%

Using data collected in the Community and Family Survey of the Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples Region, this study estimates the level of child malnutrition and identifies the factors associated with chronic malnutrition among children in the five densely populated zones of the Region. A total of 850 children aged 3 - 36 months were included in the present study. Both bivariate and multivariate techniques were employed in order to identify risk factors of child malnutrition. The results indicate that about 45% of children are stunted, 42% underweight, and 12% wasted. The search for the factors affecting long-term nutritional status point to both socio-economic and demographic factors. Among the socio-economic factors, household economic status and womens education were important in explaining the variation in long-term nutritional status of children. From the demographic variables included in the analysis, age, preceding birth interval and number of under-five children were associated ...
Gaborone, Botswana, 16 May 2012 Household survey data shows that stunting among under-five year-olds is twice as high among children in the poorest households than those in the richest. Stunting is a strong indicator of inadequate child growth and development, reflecting chronic lack of nutrition, care and general health. National household surveys are routinely conducted by Central Statistics Office Botswana and they track progress against basic nutrition indicators. In recent years, these have included the Multiple Indicator Cluster/ Botswana Family Health Survey (BFHS) series, generating data for 2000 and 2007 (CSO, 2001 and 2009). While the survey reports have valuable national data on child nutrition indicators, they rarely disaggregate indicators to facilitate a full appreciation of the distribution of child nutrition indicators across various socio-demographic factors and geographic areas. In order to make greater use of the survey data, the Government of Botswana with support from ...
The Government of Ethiopia recognized the need for providing equitable access to promotive, preventive, and selected curative health services to its people, and launched the health extension program (HEP) in 2003 to facilitate achieving universal access to Primary Health Care and accelerate the countrys progress, including reducing hunger and child mortality [18]. Child nutrition is one of the seven major components of the health extension packages which is the responsibility of the Health Extension Workers [19].. Due to the above efforts, Ethiopia has made a considerable progress in several dimensions, including reducing the burden of child malnutrition [3]. In the country, food insecurity remain a big challenge and over 30% of the population are below the food poverty line, unable to afford the minimum caloric intake for a healthy and active life [15]. The magnitude of the problem is not uniform throughout the country due to different reasons [13]. In Ethiopia, the government Health Policy ...
The case fatality rate for malnutrition at St Barnabas Hospital over the past years has been around 38%. The rates in other district hospitals in the Eastern Cape province were found to be in excess of 30%. In June 2000, the Eastern Cape Department of Health introduced a protocol for in-patient management of children with severe malnutrition, with the aim of reducing case fatality rate below 10%. St Barnabas Hospital introduced the Eastern Cape protocol in August 2003. An evaluation was done in November 2003 to assess the protocols impact on the case fatality rate. The rate remained high, at 37.5%. This study descibed the current practices and attitudes of the nurses as St Barnabas Hospital paediatric ward, in the management of severely malnourished childen ...
A Save the Children Report warns that malnutrition-related to the coronavirus pandemic could kill an average of 153 children a day over the next two years.. The report says the impact of Covid-19 has led to an increase in poverty, a loss of livelihoods, and less access to health and nutrition services, pushing up rates of hunger and malnutrition.. It also says that the pandemic could reverse years of progress made in the battle against malnutrition, with children in Asia and sub-Sahara Africa being hardest hit - especially those in poorer households or in crises and conflict zones.. ...

One in three pre-school children in the developing world is undernourished. As a consequence, their human rights are violated. In addition, they are more likely to have impaired immune systems, poorer cognitive development, lower productivity as adults, and greater susceptibility to diet-related chronic diseases such as hypertension and coronary heart disease later in life. Undernourished female preschoolers are likely to grow into undernourished young women who are more likely to give birth to babies who are undernourished even before they are born, thus perpetuating the inter-generational transmission of deprivation. Reducing these unacceptably high numbers remains a tremendous challenge to public policy. As a guide to the direction of future efforts, this research report examines the success of the efforts of the past 25 years to reduce preschooler undernutrition. The report uses an econometric model to identify the factors associated with the reduction in undernutrition. The formulation of ...

due to their geographical location and topography, as well as famines such as the one that is currently sweeping most of Southern and Central Malawi. But, once you dig deeper, you will realize the issue is much more than environmental inhibitors.. Children under five are victims of the most hunger related deaths, more so than any other demographic. In many nations, such as Malawi, Africa, there is a cultural hierarchy-one that unfortunately promotes children eating last. The youngest child is the last to eat at every meal, and these children rarely eat once they are finished breastfeeding. Hunger and malnutrition therefore kill more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Malnutrition weakens the childrens resistance and increases the risk of dying from pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, measles or AIDS. Many malnourished children die because they are vulnerable to repeated bouts of disease and infection. Most of the damage caused by malnutrition occurs in children before ...
Although Guinea-Bissau has made progress in reducing its child mortality rate, one in 7 children still die before reaching the age of 5 and more than a quarter of all children under 5 are stunted.

Well, noone but about 3% of Iraqis would genuinely want the old regime back. But just as in Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet bloc, noone was ever given the choice as to what they did want. And at least the latter was a revolution driven in large part by popular struggle. In this revolution from above (shades of Hungary, Czechoslovakia etc), there was never even the potential for Iraqis to be able to impact the outcome except by resisting the revolutionaries. This is exactly what the fellow-travellers of Empire, mimicking a past generation of fellow-travellers, refuse to accept ...

Each year, about one million Nigerian children die before their birthday and malnutrition contributes to nearly half of these deaths. While malnutrition reduces the GDP of a nation, Nigeria records the highest-burden in Africa. The disease impedes physical growth and cognitive development of a child, with one in three Nigerian children experiencing nutrition deficit.. Constructive comparative analysis of malnutrition and under-development remain key to understanding the critical role adequate nutrition plays in the nation.. While Nigeriar ecognises the importance of adequate nutrition status to its development through the adoption of various policies on nutrition, policy neglect in the implementation process remains a serious setback..

Agnès Binagwaho, Niloo Ratnayake, Mary C. Smith Fawzi. [PDF version]. At a time when accountability is a key message for countries, constituencies, and organizations, it is important that major multilateral agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) are also held accountable for actions taken or not taken. This article first reviews the methods of monitoring growth and development among children under five years of age by the WHO. It then addresses the fact that the WHO delayed disseminating new Child Growth Standards. In addition, the need for more technical support by the WHO for managing chronic malnutrition in young children is needed. This delay has cost the lives of malnourished children around the world.. Malnutrition can account for up to 50% of deaths among children under the age of five since it is a significant underlying factor of child mortality. In developing countries, approximately 25% of children in this age range are moderately or severely malnourished (underweight ...
