Pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine efficacy and selection for mutations in Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase and dihydropteroate synthase in Mali. (1/347)

To assess pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine (PS) efficacy in Mali, and the role of mutations in Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) and dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS) in in vivo PS resistance, 190 patients with uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria were treated with PS and monitored for 56 days. Mutation-specific polymerase chain reactions and digestion with restriction endonucleases were used to detect DHFR and DHPS mutations on filter paper blood samples from pretreatment and post-treatment infections. Only one case each of RI and RII level resistance and no cases of RIII resistance or therapeutic failure were observed. Post-PS treatment infections had significantly higher rates of DHFR mutations at codons 108 and 59. No significant selection for DHPS mutations was seen. Pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine is highly efficacious in Mali, and while the low level of resistance precludes assessing the utility of molecular assays for in vivo PS resistance, rapid selection of DHFR mutations supports their role in PS failure.  (+info)

A spatial statistical approach to malaria mapping. (2/347)

BACKGROUND: Good maps of malaria risk have long been recognized as an important tool for malaria control. The production of such maps relies on modelling to predict the risk for most of the map, with actual observations of malaria prevalence usually only known at a limited number of specific locations. Estimation is complicated by the fact that there is often local variation of risk that cannot be accounted for by the known covariates and because data points of measured malaria prevalence are not evenly or randomly spread across the area to be mapped. METHOD: We describe, by way of an example, a simple two-stage procedure for producing maps of predicted risk: we use logistic regression modelling to determine approximate risk on a larger scale and we employ geo-statistical ('kriging') approaches to improve prediction at a local level. Malaria prevalence in children under 10 was modelled using climatic, population and topographic variables as potential predictors. After the regression analysis, spatial dependence of the model residuals was investigated. Kriging on the residuals was used to model local variation in malaria risk over and above that which is predicted by the regression model. RESULTS: The method is illustrated by a map showing the improvement of risk prediction brought about by the second stage. The advantages and shortcomings of this approach are discussed in the context of the need for further development of methodology and software.  (+info)

The epidemiology of human hookworm infections in the southern region of Mali. (3/347)

Two surveys of hookworm (Necator americanus) infections, conducted three years apart (December 1994 and January 1998) in a village in the Sikasso region of Mali, revealed that overall prevalence of infection was 68.7% and 53%, respectively. In both years there was a highly significant difference between the sexes in the prevalence and abundance of infection, with male subjects carrying heavier infections than females. Both prevalence and abundance of infection increased with age, although in 1998 there was a strong interaction between sex and age, arising from the declining egg counts among 16-20-year-old females and the continuing increase among males, reinforced by the subsequent reduction among the older males (> or = 61 years) and concomitant increase among females. After controlling for the effects of age, sex and their interaction, a highly significant positive relationship was detected between faecal egg counts of individuals who were examined in both 1994 and 1998 (n = 134), indicating predisposition to infection. This relationship remained significant in each of 4 age classes spanning 7-79 years. The members of some family compounds were shown to carry heavier infections than expected whilst others were less infected, suggesting compound-related clustering of hookworm infections. The use of footwear increased with age but there was no significant relationship between the extent of use of footwear and the abundance of hookworm infection. Eyesight deteriorated with age and impaired vision was particularly prominent among the older sectors of the community, a legacy from the time when onchocerciasis was widely prevalent in the region. Although men with partially damaged eyes carried lower infections than expected for their age, no overall significant relationship was found between quality of vision and hookworm infections. These results are discussed in relation to hookworm epidemiology in general and in Mali in particular.  (+info)

What does a single determination of malaria parasite density mean? A longitudinal survey in Mali. (4/347)

Temporal variations of blood parasite density were evaluated in a longitudinal study of young, asymptomatic men in a village with endemic malaria in Mali (West Africa). Our main intention was to challenge the value of a single measure of parasite density for the diagnosis of malaria, and to define the level of endemicity in any given area. Parasitaemia and body temperature were recorded three times a day in the wet season (in 39 subjects on 12 days) and in the dry season (in 41 subjects on 13 days). Two thousand nine hundred and fifty seven blood smears (98.5% of the expected number) were examined for malaria parasites. We often found 100-fold or greater variations in parasite density within a 6-hour period during individual follow-up. All infected subjects had frequent negative smears. Although fever was most likely to occur in subjects with a maximum parasite density exceeding 10000 parasites/mm3 (P = 0.009), there was no clear relationship between the timing of these two events. Examples of individual profiles for parasite density and fever are presented. These variations (probably due to a 'sequestration-release' mechanism, which remains to be elucidated) lead us to expect a substantial impact on measurements of endemicity when only a single sample is taken. In this study, the percentage of infected individuals varied between 28.9% and 57.9% during the dry season and between 27.5% and 70.7% during the wet season. The highest rates were observed at midday, and there were significant differences between days. Thus, high parasite density sometimes associated with fever can no longer be considered as the gold standard in the diagnosis of malaria. Other approaches, such as decision-making processes involving clinical, biological and ecological variables must be developed, especially in highly endemic areas where Plasmodium infection is the rule rather than the exception and the possible causes of fever are numerous.  (+info)

Rapid selection of Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase mutants by pyrimethamine prophylaxis. (5/347)

A prospective study was conducted to measure the selective effect of pyrimethamine prophylaxis on point mutations in Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR). A total of 109 Malian children were given pyrimethamine weekly for 5 weeks. P. falciparum infections were analyzed by polymerase chain reaction for DHFR mutations, which were dramatically more frequent among prophylaxis-breakthrough infections than at baseline: the prevalence of Asn-108 rose from 13% to 100%, Ile-51 from 4% to 50%, and Arg-59 from 11% to 90%. Eight persistent infections lacking detectable DHFR mutations at baseline developed multiple mutations within 1 week of the patients' starting pyrimethamine prophylaxis. Microsatellite analysis found no evidence of clonal identity among baseline and breakthrough infections. Analysis of these data demonstrates that under prophylaxis conditions, pyrimethamine is strongly selective for DHFR mutations, which arise extremely rapidly under drug pressure, even when undetectable in the initial infection. These findings have implications for prophylaxis regimens with other antifolate drugs.  (+info)

Hemoglobin C associated with protection from severe malaria in the Dogon of Mali, a West African population with a low prevalence of hemoglobin S. (6/347)

The malaria hypothesis proposes a survival advantage for individuals with hemoglobin variants in areas of endemic Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Hemoglobin C (HbC) is a possible example in West Africa, where this hemoglobin has a centric distribution with high frequencies among certain populations including the Dogon ethnic group. To test whether HbC is associated with protection from malaria, we performed a case-control study in the Dogon of Bandiagara, Mali. HbC was present in 68 of 391 (17.4%) of uncomplicated malaria control cases, whereas it was detected in only 3 of 67 cases (4.5%) of severe malaria (odds ratio [OR], 0.22; P =. 01). Further, HbC was present in only 1 of 34 cases (2.9%) with cerebral manifestations, the most common presentation of severe malaria in this population (OR, 0.14; P =.03). Episodes of uncomplicated malaria and parasitemias (4800-205 050/microL) were identified in cases of homozygous HbC (HbCC), which indicates that P falciparum parasites are able to efficiently replicate within HbCC erythrocytes in vivo. These findings suggest that HbC does not protect against infection or uncomplicated malaria but can protect against severe malaria in the Dogon population of Bandiagara, Mali. The data also suggest that the protective effect associated with HbC may be greater than that of HbS in this population.  (+info)

Gene flow among populations of the malaria vector, Anopheles gambiae, in Mali, West Africa. (7/347)

The population structure of the Anopheles gambiae complex is unusual, with several sibling species often occupying a single area and, in one of these species, An. gambiae sensu stricto, as many as three "chromosomal forms" occurring together. The chromosomal forms are thought to be intermediate between populations and species, distinguishable by patterns of chromosome gene arrangements. The extent of reproductive isolation among these forms has been debated. To better characterize this structure we measured effective population size, N(e), and migration rates, m, or their product by both direct and indirect means. Gene flow among villages within each chromosomal form was found to be large (N(e)m > 40), was intermediate between chromosomal forms (N(e)m approximately 3-30), and was low between species (N(e)m approximately 0.17-1.3). A recently developed means for distinguishing among certain of the forms using PCR indicated rates of gene flow consistent with those observed using the other genetic markers.  (+info)

Child malaria treatment practices among mothers in the district of Yanfolila, Sikasso region, Mali. (8/347)

We studied child malaria treatment practices among mothers living in the District of Yanfolila in southern Mali. For sampling, we first chose five of 13 health areas with probability proportional to size. Then villages, compounds and mothers with at least one child aged 1-5 years were randomly chosen. We assessed the spleen size of one 1-5 year-old child of each mother, collected a thick blood film and recorded the body temperature of every child whose mother thought he/she was sick. 399 mothers in 28 villages were interviewed with a structured questionnaire divided into two parts. If the child had had soumaya (a term previously associated with uncomplicated malaria) during the past rainy season, we asked about signs and symptoms, health-seeking behaviour (who the mother consulted first) and treatment. If not, information about knowledge of the disease and treatment to be given was collected. 86% of the mothers interviewed stated that their child had been sick and almost half of them had had soumaya. All mothers named at least one sign by which they recognized the disease. Vomiting, fever and dark urine/yellow eyes/jaundice were the three most common signs mentioned. 75.8% managed their child's disease at home and used both traditional and modern treatment. The most common anti-malarial drug was chloroquine, often given at inappropriate dosage. The sensitivity and specificity of the mothers' diagnosis was poor, although this might be explained by the large percentage of children who had already been treated at the time of the interview. The results of our survey call for prompt educational action for the correct treatment of uncomplicated malaria/soumaya, particularly for mothers and possibly for shopkeepers. The high spleen rate (58.1%) among randomly selected children confirms that malaria is a common disease in this area. Improved case-management at home could only be beneficial.  (+info)

Mali, one of the worlds poorest nations, is greatly affected by poverty, malnutrition, epidemics and inadequate hygiene and sanitation. Malis health and development indicators rank among the worst in the world, with little improvement over the last 20 years. Progress is impeded by Malis poverty and by a lack of physicians. The 2012 conflict in northern Mali exacerbated difficulties in delivering health services to refugees living in the north. Although Mali has its own health care, with a governmental constitution that advocates countrywide health, Mali is heavily dependent upon international development organizations and foreign missionary groups for much of its health care. In 2001 general government expenditures on health constituted 6.8 percent of total general government expenditures and 2.9 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Medical facilities in Mali are very limited, especially outside of Bamako, and medicines are in short supply. There are three major public hospitals in the ...

Algeria and Chad together cover about 9% of the total Niger River basin, but there are almost no renewable water resources in these areas.. The area of the Niger River basin in Guinea is only 4% of the total area of the basin, but the sources of the Niger River are located in this country. The quantity of water entering Mali from Guinea (40 km3/yr) is greater than the quantity of water entering Nigeria from Niger (36 km3/yr), about 1800 hen further downstream. This is due among other reasons to the enormous reduction in runoff in the inner delta in Mali through seepage and evaporation combined with almost no runoff from the whole of the left bank in Mali and Niger.. The most important areas of the Niger basin are located in Mali, Niger and Nigeria (25 % in each of these three countries). Mali and Niger are almost entirely dependent on the Niger River for their water resources. In the case of Niger nearly 90% of its total water resources originates outside its borders (the Niger River and other ...

We have implemented several programs that have stabilized the health and wellbeing of this population and strongly promoted a goal of self-sufficiency.. Medicine for Malis programs include:. ...
Mali, the largest country in West-Africa, has two totally different faces. The north of the country extends into the Sahara and is almost entirely arid desert, while the south is tropical with summer rainfall and lots of rivers.. The main river is without a doubt the Niger. Along the banks of the principal river of Western Africa, there are a lot of authentic fishing-villages that are certainly worth a visit. Other great attractions in Mali are the Dogon Valley with its magnificent cliff villages, the legendary city of Timbuktu and not to forget: the breathtaking mosque in Djenné, which is entirely built out of clay.. And of course we cant forget to mention Bamako, the capital and largest city of Mali. It offers a wide range of tourist attractions such as the Grand Mosque, the National Museum of Mali buildings and the Bamako Botanical Gardens.. ...
The economy of Mali is based to a large extent upon agriculture, with a mostly rural population engaged in subsistence agriculture. Mali is among the ten poorest nations of the world, is one of the 37 Heavily Indebted Poor Countries, and is a major recipient of foreign aid from many sources, including multilateral organizations (most significantly the World Bank, African Development Bank, and Arab Funds), and bilateral programs funded by the European Union, France, United States, Canada, Netherlands, and Germany. Before 1991, the former Soviet Union, China and the Warsaw Pact countries had been a major source of economic and military aid. The per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of Mali was $820 in 1999. Malis great potential wealth lies in mining and the production of agricultural commodities, livestock, and fish. The most productive agricultural area lies along the banks of the Niger River, the Inner Niger Delta and the southwestern region around Sikasso. This is a chart of trend of gross ...

This study shows that two sympatric ethnic groups in Mali, the Fulani and the Dogon, exhibit differential frequencies in the expression of FcγRIIa R131H genotypes and allotypes. It furthermore, confirms and extends the previous findings regarding differences in anti-malarial responses between sympatric ethnic groups living in West Africa [12, 13]. The Fulani were less parasitized, had fewer parasite clones and had higher anti-malarial IgG subclass levels than the sympatric ethnic group, the Dogon. Fulani also showed a higher spleen rate as compared to Dogon. Interestingly, the Fulani showed significantly lower haemoglobin levels as compared to the Dogon, which was recently confirmed in both a longitudinal study and two cross sectional studies in the same study area (Dolo et al, personal communication).. The FcγRIIa R131H genotype results of this study contradict those from previous reports, where the R/R genotype has been associated with protection (reviewed by Braga [8]). Here it was revealed ...
Despite its enormous land mass, Mali is economically poor but politically more prosperous. Economic activity is limited to the regions around the Niger Delta-90% of the population live in the South of the country. The rest of the country is comprised by a large chunk of the Sahara desert. The country is largely undeveloped, with 80% of the population engaged in fishing or agriculture and over 50% of living below the poverty line. Mali has however been a significant benefactor of foreign aid. The successful implementation of IMF structural adjustment programmes has increased its GDP growth to an average annual rate of 5% in the period 1996-2008. Infrastructural improvements, including a programme of road building, finally connecting Mali to all its neighbouring countries, have in recent years begun to attract the attention of international investors. Cotton is Malis biggest agricultural export and the industry was hit hard when prices collapsed in 2003. This blow to the economy was however compensated
Bamako) - The Malian government should act to curtail rising violent crime and abuses by armed groups and state security forces that threaten the security of the population in northern and central Mali, Human Rights Watch said today. Two years after a French-led military intervention in the embattled country, there remains widespread lawlessness and insecurity.. In the north, a brief renewal of fighting in mid-2014 provoked the withdrawal of Malian soldiers and civil servants, including judicial officers. This left large swaths of territory devoid of state authority in which Tuareg separatists, Islamist armed groups, pro-government militias, and bandits have committed abuses with impunity. Since January 2015, a new Islamist armed group has committed a spate of attacks against civilians in central Mali.. Rampant criminality and attacks by armed groups and abuses by the security forces are putting ordinary people in central and northern Mali at risk, said Corinne Dufka, West Africa director at ...
At the end of his first week in office, Macron flew into Gao, a city in Malis north, where political unrest and ethnic strife have raged for more than five years.. He was met by Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita with whom he held talks on the fight against terrorism.. He also met some of the 1,600 French soldiers stationed there, on the largest French military base outside of France.. Macron called on the Malian government to implement the 2015 peace deal, which has repeatedly faltered in the face of inaction and ongoing rivalries between the patchwork of armed groups operating in the north who signed the accord.. My wish is for us to accelerate the deals implementation, Macron said at a press conference, describing the so-called Algiers Accord as the top priority to ensure Malis security.. Al Jazeeras Nicolas Haque, reporting from the capital Bamako, said the short visit is a sign from Macron of his commitment to the region. This visit to Mali is really to show to the French ...
France is in its fifth day of an offensive to oust rebels that have held much of Malis northern region since March, an area larger than Afghanistan. The strikes have reportedly killed 11 civilians, including three children fleeing the bombardment of a camp near the central town of Konna. The United Nations estimates as many as 30,000 may have been displaced since fighting began last week. The United States has backed the offensive by helping transport French troops and making plans to send drones or other surveillance aircraft. It is aiding a fight against Malian forces that it once helped train, only to see them defect and join the Islamist rebellion. We discuss the latest in Mali with Al Jazeera correspondent May Ying Welsh, who has reported from Malis north, and with freelance journalist Hannah Armstrong, a fellow of the Institute of Current World Affairs, who joins us from the Malian capital of Bamako ...
The project to support the socio-economic reintegration of the populations of Northern Mali (PARSEP-NM) is a contribution of the Bank to promote a gradual return to stability. This operation, which will last four (4) years, will consolidate the results obtained from emergency operations initiated since 2012. Indeed, since 2012, Mali has experienced a succession of crises (security, political and institutional) that have destabilized the country in all areas, led to a profound dysfunction of public administration and accentuated regional disparities. In the context of post-crisis reconstruction, the Government has made the development of the northen regions affected by the crisis, an important dimension of its strategy to bring peace and stability to Mali. This support is part of the implementation of the Algiers Peace Agreement (signed in 2015) and is justified by the need to tackle triggers of fragility through the reduction of inequalities. The proposed intervention through this support aims ...

VANCOUVER, BC -- Victor Jones, Chairman, reports that the Company has established a Phosphate Advisory Committee to assist with the commercial development of its Phosphate project in eastern Mali. The Company now has concessions covering some 737 sq km prospective for phosphate. Work carried out by the Company on its Tin Hina concession, reported in 2009, and the recent acquisition of the Tarkint Est concession, covering additional occurrences of phosphate, support a decision to continue exploration for commercial sources of natural phosphate for the Mali market. Known as le Phosphate Naturel de Tilemsi (PNT), from the region of Mali where the Tin Hina and Tarkint Est concessions are located, this material, when mined, pulverized and applied to Malian soil, has been shown to significantly increase the yield of various agricultural crops. Phosphate plays a key role in vigorous plant growth and is an integral component of most fertilizers. The study of the optimal preparation and application of ...
BAMAKO, Mali, Dec. 1, 2007 - PSI, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Health Policy Initiative Project received top honors from the Malian government for their efforts against HIV/AIDS, including a reduction in adult national HIV prevalence from 1.7 percent in 2001 to 1.2 percent in 2006. Minister of Health Maiga Zeinab Mint Youba presented PSI/Mali Country Representative Steve Lutterbeck with an award for their successful collaborations with the Malian government, civil society and other partners. President Amadou Toumani Touré was also present at the ceremony and personally thanked the organizations for their achievements. Mail Country Program
This study examines the relationship between confict and demographic trends in Mali - notably fertility, mortality, and migration. Malis demographics are similar to those in neighbouring Niger, Burkina Faso, and Guinea, and refect broader trends across Sub-Saharan Africa: rapid population growth, high fertility rates, poor government services and a surging urban, unemployed youth population. Those aggregate factors may put a country at greater risk of confict, but, contrary to expectations, they do not actually offer a causal explanation for the confict in Mali.
Downloadable! In this paper, we construct the first country specific CGE model for Mali with a micro-simulation component to analyze the poverty and inequality changes of removing cotton subsidies in developed countries. We used the macro-accounting approach proposed by Chen and Ravallion (2004). This issue has attracted significant attention as is has contributed to stall the broader trade agenda. Research on the issue has been mainly done with partial equilibrium analysis with a few exceptions. We use the first CGE-micro-simulation model to investigate. A 17 sectors CGE model with almost 5000 households is used to demonstrate that removal of subsidies on cotton will contribute to significant decrease in poverty in Mali. Our results show that combining the cotton subsidies removal to other agricultural subsidies does not attenuate the positive effects observed. We also show that the subsidies removal would marginally contribute to decrease inequality in Mali.

Malis government and an alliance of Tuareg-led northern rebels agreed to cease hostilities on Thursday to ease tensions during U.N.-sponsored peace negotiations aimed at ending decades of uprisings. The talks hosted by Algiers, the fifth round of recent negotiations, must now turn to the tricky questions over identity, a form of limited self-rule and more rights for the northern desert region the rebels call Azawad. Western governments are keen for a lasting peace in Mali, fearing Islamist militants will again profit from the unrest in the north to gain a foothold, two years after French troops intervened to drive them out. U.N. Mali mission chief Mongi Hamdi has said he expects this to be the last step to a final peace agreement. But talks have been hampered by fighting on the ground and differences over how to devolve powers, and even the name of the north. Thursdays deal, which calls for an immediate halt to hostilities and provocations, was signed by the rebel coalition, including Tuareg ...

ABIDJAN/BAMAKO (Reuters) - French forces killed 33 Islamist militants in Mali on Saturday using attack helicopters, ground troops and a drone, near the border with Mauritania where a group linked to al Qaeda operates, French authorities said. The raid about 150 km (90 miles) northwest of Mopti in Mali
BAMAKO, Mali - French forces arrived Friday to help Malian soldiers fight against radical Islamists, drawing the former colonial power into a military operation to oust the al-Qaida-linked militants nine months after they seized control of northern Mali. The arrival of the French dramatically ups the stakes in a conflict taking place in a swath of lawless desert where terrorism and kidnapping have flourished.
January 29, 2013. The Defence Secretary said he knew the risks that the UK could become involved in a lengthy conflict but insisted the government had placed strict limits on deploying forces to help the Malian government repel fighters linked to al Qaeda.. There are no plans for British troops to take on a combat role on the front-line but up to 40 will be deployed inside Mali itself as part of a European Union force to train Malian troops. A further 200 British personnel are poised to train troops from other African countries for the mission.. Some 70 personnel are already in the region operating a Sentinel spyplane, while 20 RAF crew are staffing a transport plane carrying equipment from France to Mali, the government said. Read more ...

The population of Mali in 2003 was estimated by the United Nations at 13,007,000, which placed it as number 64 in population among the 193 nations of the world. In that year approximately 3% of the population was over 65 years of age, with another 47% of the population under 15 years of age. There were 98 males for every 100 females in the country in 2003. According to the UN, the annual population growth rate for 2000-2005 is 3.00%, with the projected population for the year 2015 at 18,986,000. The population density in 2002 was 9 per sq km (24 per sq mi), but the western quarter of the country has three-quarters of the population, and along the Niger River, population density exceeds 500 per sq km (1,300 per sq mi). By contrast fewer than 1.5 people per square km (4 per sq mi) live in the northern three-fifths of Mali. It was estimated by the Population Reference Bureau that 30% of the population lived in urban areas in 2001. About 10% of the inhabitants are nomadic, and the remainder rural. ...

At the same time, Le Drian downplayed the severity of the situation, saying that France could count on the commanders of the Malian Army to get troops under control with respect to revenge killings, saying there was no question of us condoning the same kind of actions which we condemn when committed by the terrorists.. Malis military has been repeatedly faulted for summary executions since September, when they captured a group of Muslim preachers heading to a conference and executed the lot of them.. Since then rights groups have reported growing evidence that troops in several frontier towns have been capturing refugees from the north, particularly those whose ethnicity are seen as pro-rebel, and executing them for not having ID cards.. Malis junta has taken several different approaches to the killings, claiming last week that no military is perfect, then denying the incidents, then announcing today that they intend to court-martial anyone proven to be involved.. ...
At the end of our road lies Bamako, the capital of Mali. A vote was due there in two months time but the military have seen fit to take matters into their own hands, driven to rebellion themselves as the fight with the rebels of the north has grown more difficult.. On Wednesday, a small group of fairly low-ranking officers took control of the airwaves as a first step to taking control of the country. Now the whereabouts of the countrys president, Amadou Toumani Toure, aka ATT, are unknown. As are the precise plans of the officers now in charge.. And so we have left one west african country in the grips of democratic fever for its neighbour in the throws of a coup detat that few had seen coming.. The road from Dakar to Bamako is long. And hot. As weve inched closer to the Malian border, sparse and bear vegetation has grown thicker and greener. What lies ahead is unclear but the road stands as a reminder of the fragility of democracy in these parts and how easily it can be left behind altogether ...
Tara Hopkins of Mali Health in the U.S. will develop methods to improve vaccination coverage in rural communities in southern Mali by engaging community health workers together with traditional birth attendants who are present during home births. In southern Mali, particularly in rural communities, most children are born at home, so they are not registered with a health clinic or present for critical childhood vaccinations. Local health services have limited funds and resources to manage the health records of all the babies born in their communities, or to follow-up with families regarding the necessary vaccinations. This translates to low vaccine coverage of around 9% in some regions, and increased incidences of deadly infectious diseases. They will pilot the project in three rural health districts and create a quality improvement team in each, consisting of a coach, local health workers, birth attendants, and mothers. The teams will be given tools to engage in a group effort to identify the ...
