BACKGROUND: The role played by social determinants of health including social, economic, environmental and cultural factors in influencing health outcomes for many health conditions has been widely described. However, the potential impact of these factors on morbidity and mortality of infectious diseases particularly tuberculosis (Tb)/HIV co-infection mortality is scantly addressed. We assessed the role that social determinants play in Tb/HIV co-infection mortality in southwest Ethiopia. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study collated Tb and HIV data from Jimma University Teaching Hospital, Southwest Ethiopia for the period of September 2010 and August 2012. Data analysis was conducted using STATA version 14 for mackintosh. Both descriptive and inferential statistics analyses were performed. Logistic regression was applied to identify factors associated with Tb/HIV co-infection mortality at P value of ≤0.05 in the final model. RESULTS: Fifty-five (20.2 %) patients died during the study period. ...
Background: The challenges of research in economically stunted countries settings remains a profound concern and is linked to socioeconomic development of these countries. More research is needed regarding psychiatric morbidity in rural areas of the developing and poverty stricken countries. The present studies were undertaken within the framework of a broader ongoing community-based project on the course and outcome of major psychiatric disorders in the rural Butajira district located in Ethiopia. This thesis treats the course and outcome of bipolar I disorder in the district.. Objectives: Through appraising mental health and population based research in a rural Ethiopian district, to evaluate the utility of modern research instruments, and to obtain baseline information relating to bipolar I disorder in the poverty stricken rural Butajira district of Ethiopia. The specific objectives were: 1. Evaluating and comparing two different screening methods of case detection and identification for ...

In this prospective, population-based study from rural Ethiopia, 28.7% of pregnant women were screened to have symptoms of depression. These women had significantly increased odds of unplanned utilisation of institutional delivery care, mostly due to emergency presentations rather than planning to deliver in a healthcare facility. Assisted delivery was also significantly greater in women with antenatal depressive symptoms.. Overall, the prevalence of antenatal depressive symptoms in our study is consistent with studies in Ghana (26.3%) and Cote dIvoire (28.3%) which used the same measure [18, 23]. Studies in South Africa [25], Vietnam [17] and Southern Brazil [24] using other screening tools (Self-Reporting Questionnaire and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale) also reported rates of antenatal depressive symptoms of 30-39%.. Prior to the introduction of the health extension programme [71], and until 2011, institutional delivery rates in Ethiopia were very low [52]. Recent trends indicate ...

Declining soil fertility status and poor agronomic practices, including minimum use of inorganic fertilizers and inappropriate plant population are the major reasons for low productivity of soybean. A field experiment was carried out to determine the response of soybean to plant population and NP fertilizer in Kersa woreda of Jimma zone, south western Ethiopia during the 2015/2016 cropping season. Four levels of NP fertilizer (23/23, 23/46, 46/46 and 69/69 kg/ha) and plant population (166667, 200000, 33333 and 400000 plants/ha) were laid out in a factorial experiment in randomized complete block design with three replications. The analysis of variance also showed that the interaction effects of plant population and NP fertilizer were significant on number of pods, pod length, number of nodules, hundred seed weight, biomass yield and grain yield. Whereas plant population had significant influences on days to 50% flowering, days to 50% maturity, number of branch, number of nodules, plant height, leaf area
Method: Data were collected from 10 rural villages of the Sidama Zone, Southern Ethiopia, using a structured interview schedule. The 1,094 eligible women respondents were selected using a combination of simple random and multi-stage sampling techniques. The main outcome variable of the study (IM) was measured by reported infant deaths during the twelve months preceding the survey, and was estimated at 9.6% or 96 infant deaths per 1,000 births. Pregnancy and health care variables were used as the main explanatory variables along with other household and individual characteristics ...
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 ...

However the immediate area did not encourage the founding of a town due to the lack of firewood and water, so settlement actually began in the valley south of the mountain in 1886. Initially, Taytu built a house for herself near the "Filwoha" hot mineral springs, where she and members of the Showan Royal Court liked to take mineral baths. Other nobility and their staffs and households settled the vicinity, and Menelik expanded his wifes house to become the Imperial Palace which remains the seat of government in Addis Ababa today. The name changed to Addis Ababa and became Ethiopias capital when Menelik II became Emperor of Ethiopia. The town grew by leaps and bounds. One of Emperor Meneliks contributions that is still visible today is the planting of numerous eucalyptus trees along the city streets.. On 5 May 1936, Italian troops occupied Addis Ababa during the Second Italo-Abyssinian War, making it the capital of Italian East Africa from 1936 to 1941 after killing about a million Ethiopians ...
Intestinal parasitic infections (IPIs) pose significant public health challenges in school children in developing countries. The aim of this study is to determine prevalence of intestinal parasites among elementary school children in Mizan-Aman town, southwest Ethiopia. Institution-based cross-sectional study involving 460 elementary school children in Mizan-Aman Town was conducted from May to June 2013. The school children were selected using multistage sampling technique. Data on demography and predisposing factors of IPIs were collected using pretested questionnaire. Moreover, single stool specimen was examined microscopically after wet mount and formol-ether sedimentation concentration procedures. Infection intensity of Schistosoma mansoni and soil-transmitted helminths (STHs) was estimated using Kato-Katz egg counting method. Age of the children ranged from 5 to 17 years. Overall, 76.7 % (95%CI: 72.8-80.6) of the children harbored at least one species of intestinal parasite. Eight species of
Background: Understanding ecological factors that influence risky sexual behavior of adolescents is vital in designing and implementing sexual risk reduction interventions in specific contexts. Interventions undertaken without understanding the critical factors may not produce the desired results. Objective: The objective of this study was to identify the factors associated with adolescent risky sexual behavior among school adolescents in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Methods: This cross-sectional study was done among randomly selected school adolescents in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Data were collected by an anonymous self administered questionnaire. Risky sexual behavior was assessed by asking question about sexual activity, consistent condom use and faithfulness to a single partner. Logistic regression analysis was done to identify factors related to sexual behavior using the ecological framework. Result: Overall 377(10.6%) of the 723 sexually active students were involved in risky sexual practices. Risky
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the ownership and use of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) by the local community 2 years after a free distribution campaign in Ethiopia.
Timely initiation of breastfeeding is defined as putting the newborn to the breast within one hour of birth. Significant benefits in reducing neonatal mortality and morbidity can be attained with effective promotion of timely initiation of breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding during the first months of life. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess timely initiation of breastfeeding and associated factors among mothers in South Gondar, Amhara regional state, Northern Ethiopia. A community based cross-sectional study was employed. A multistage stratified sampling technique was used to select the sample of 845 mothers with 97.4% response rate. Moreover, data were collected by face to face interview using a semi structured questionnaire. The prevalence of timely initiation of breastfeeding was 48.7% (54.7% in urban and 25.1% in rural areas). The odds of initiation of breastfeeding within one hour was higher for urban mothers (Adjusted Odds Ratio [AOR] 2.1; 95% Confidence Interval [CI] 1.4, 3.3),

Ethiopia has a proud and long history. In the Bible, it is known as, "the land of Cush," named after Noahs grandson. Semitic people-groups have populated Ethiopia for quite some time. Semites from Saba (modern-day Yemen on the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula) were the descendants of Joktan (Genesis 10:26). They made their way across the narrow Red Sea and settled in the northern highlands of Ethiopia. Today, the majority of northern Ethiopians descends from these Joktan-clan Semites and are known as the Amhara. Their Hebrew-sounding language, Amharic, has become the dominant language in all of Ethiopia.. The Queen of Sheba is often depicted in Ethiopian art and folklore. According to Ethiopian history, she was a Sabean queen. She visited Solomon to hear his wisdom and, upon her return to Ethiopia, she gave birth to a son, Menelik (meaning from the king). At twenty years of age, Menelik traveled from Ethiopia to his fathers courts in Israel. There, he was recognized by Solomon and was ...
The study aimed to determine the prevalence of malaria in Halaba special district, Southern Ethiopia, from 2013 to 2017. Of a total 583,668 malaria suspected cases examined during the study period, 55,252 (9.5%) were microscopically confirmed to be positive for malaria, at the rate of 27,712 (50.2%) females and 27,540 (49.8%) males (P = 0.95). The highest prevalence of 8454 (15.3%) malaria cases were observed in Halaba health center, followed by Halaba district hospital, at 7290 (13.2%), while the lowest cases, 1765 (3.2%), were confirmed in Wejago health center. The highest prevalence of malaria, 25,716 (46.5%), was registered among the age group ≥ 15 year old (P = 0.006). Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum were the two major malaria parasites detected in this study, with the prevalence of 33,855 (62.3%) and 21,397 (38.7%), respectively (P = 0.0001). The detected high prevalence of P. vivax in this study may clearly indicate that more attention has been given to control P. falciparum strains
When Dr Dawit Worku was doing his residency in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital, the main teaching hospital of Addis Ababa University, he was struck by the number of women with advanced cervical, uterine and ovarian cancers who were referred to the hospital from all corners of Ethiopia. There were about five gynaecologic oncologists in the country at that time, he recalls. As a result, the waiting times for patients with reproductive organ cancers were unacceptably long. Many women with potentially curable tumors did not receive treatment on time. By the end of his residency, Dr Dawit had decided to continue his studies and to sub-specialise in gynaecologic oncology.. The burden of cancer is rising in Ethiopia, and two-thirds of all cancer deaths occur among women. Specialists like Dr Dawit are part of a growing community of clinicians and public health experts linked to Addis Ababa University who are committed to making screening, early diagnosis and ...

The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and associated factors of depression among people with epilepsy at Gondar University Hospital. In this study, the prevalence of depression was found to be 45.2 %. Out of these (29.6 %) mild, (14.8 %) moderate and (0.8 %) were severe depression. This result is similar with the study done in Poland (49.2 %) [21], Mexico (42.7 %) [22], Nigeria (42, 45 %) [23] and Ethiopia (49.3 %) [16]. The results of this study confirm the study done elsewhere as depression is a common co morbid psychiatric disorder among epileptic patients.. This figure (45.2 %) is lower than the study carried out in Korea (62 %) [19], Iraq (51.6 %) [24], Pakistan (60 %) [25], Gaza (63 %) [26], and Nigeria (85.5 %) [27]. This variation may be due to using different diagnostic criteria or different rating scales in diagnosing depression and recruiting epileptic patients with different seizure types, variable frequency and severity, and with different antiepileptic medications. For ...
Vaccination can reduce child mortality significantly and is a cost effective way to improve child health.Worldwide, more than 22 million children do not receive the basic recommended vaccinations.Vaccination coverage in Ethiopia remains low. Research on child health has focused on socio-economic factors such as maternal education and access to health care, but little attention has been given to demographic factors and womens autonomy within the household. The purpose of this study was to examine the influences of demographic factors and womens autonomy on the completion of childhood vaccination in rural Ethiopia.. Methods ...

Background The acceptance of HIV testing among patients with tuberculosis (TB) is low in Ethiopia. The purpose of this study was to assess predictors of acceptance of HIV testing among patients with TB in North Ethiopia. Methods A case control study was conducted in eight randomly selected health facilities in North Ethiopia from February 5 to March 11, 2009. A total of 282 participants (188 controls and 94 cases) were included in the study. Cases were TB patients who refused to be tested for HIV. We used quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection. For the quantitative survey, cases and controls were interviewed by trained nurses using a pre-tested and structured questionnaire. In-depth interviews were conducted with 5 nurse counselors and 15 TB patients. Bivariate and multivariate analysis was done using SPSS 16.0 statistical software. Results The uptake of HIV testing among TB patients in the study health facilities was 70.6%. The rate of TB/HIV co-infection in those who were ...
In 2010, when the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Help Ethiopia Address Low TB Performance (HEAL TB) project was designed, the population of Ethiopia was estimated to be 80 million, with more than half of Ethiopians living in the Amhara and Oromia Regions-18.1 and 29.6 million people respectively. Ethiopia was seventh among the 22 high-burden countries for tuberculosis (TB), with an estimated sputum-smear- positive rate of 163 per 100,000 population. Mortality was 92 per 100,000 population. e case detection rate was also very low, at 35.8% per the 2009-2010 report. The treatment success rate (TSR) was 84% and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) was a major concern, but there was no solid program. As for HIV, adult prevalence was 2.3% per the 2010 estimate.. The HEAL TB project supported 55 million people in five years. HEAL TB was a five-year, USAID-funded TB project implemented in the Amhara and Oromia Regions of Ethiopia. HEAL TB used a phased approach ...
The Leishmanin skin test was performed on 1353 people in a kala-azar endemic region of south-west Ethiopia. Physical examinations were also carried out on 2723. Two of these individuals, both males, had active visceral leishmaniasis with Leishmania organisms demonstrated by spleen puncture. Two other males, including one member of the research team, had parasitologically proven cutaneous leishmaniasis. Because there was negligible migration and little movement of individuals outside of their tribal territories, the geographical distribution of skin test positivity and clinical findings could be determined and correlated with environmental parameters. The level of positive skin tests for the groups tested ranged from over 64% for the three tribes collectively inhabiting the lower regions of the Omo Valley (altitude approx. 500 m) to 6.4% for the Suri tribe, which lives at 1400 m. Skin test positivity was highest in areas of deeply fissuring montmorillonite soils and where Phlebotomus langeroni orientalis
INTRODUCTION: insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) stood at center in the current efforts to prevent and control malaria at community and individual levels. Though ITNs are the most prominent measure for large-scale deployment in highly endemic areas their compliance in terms of ownership and usage needs attention. The aim of this study was therefore to determine the ownership and utilization pattern of ITNs in Harari Peoples National Regional state, Ethiopia. METHODS: a community based cross-sectional study was conducted in Harari National Regional State from September to October, 2012. A total of 784 households were included from malarious areas. Data were collected by using structured questionnaires and observational checklist. RESULTS: about 57.9% of participants had at least one ITNs. The utilization of ITNs based on history of sleeping under net in the previous night was 73.3%. Regarding proper use of ITNs, 57.9% of respondents demonstrated proper hanging and tucking. Those households with secondary

She recalls one case that made the headlines, where a woman suffering from fistula was about to be burnt alive by her community. She managed to convince the womans family and community to desist and take her instead to the Hamlin Fistula Centre in Bahirdar, then later to the fistula centre at Gondar University Hospital for treatment. The outcome was positive.. "More than 50 women have been treatment since and each of them in turn convinced fistula patients in their communities to seek treatment," Genet says proudly.. The fistula centre at Gondar University Hospital is among three such centres that UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is supporting in the country to treat obstetric fistula patients. The support takes the form of provision of medical equipment used for the treatment. The Fund contributes US$100 for the treatment of each fistula patient. To date, more than 2000 fistula patients and around 400 women suffering from uterine prolapse have been repaired over the past few years. ...
The refresher training began by framing the need for this knowledge and skill set. The Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa is the premier teaching and patient care site in this country of 92 million people. About 3,000 deliveries a year take place at the hospital. Being a tertiary care referral center, these are disproportionately more complicated and higher risk pregnancies than the general population.. Within an average, healthy population, 10% of babies will require some sort of support at delivery. In this high-risk population, estimates can be as high as 30-40% of newborns who will require resuscitation.. Our training started with a definition of the scope of the challenge, and nurse-midwife Sharon Ryan, CNM, DNP, discussed both maternal and labor and delivery risk factors which may compromise a newborn and necessitate resuscitation efforts.. Monica Terez, RN and life-time neonatal nurse took over and outlined the equipment needs and basic resuscitation algorithm for a newborn, including ...
I. Introduction. Of all the information required in planning humanitarian interventions, the "where" dimension is perhaps the most important [1]. Humanitarian organizations need to understand not only the geography of their environment, but also the infrastructure, settlements, land usage, political boundaries, and a range of the social and population data that overlay it. However, this information is frequently not readily available.. This challenge was evident during the establishment of a primary-level medical intervention in the Whantoa district in the Ethiopian regional state of Gambella. Located in Western Ethiopia, the Whantoa district is very remote, with little infrastructure or public services. The district is bordered by the Baro, Pibor, and Makwei Rivers and transected by the Dhure River. At the time of the humanitarian intervention, landform maps were inaccurate and land use maps were nonexistent. The Whantoa district is home to the Nuer, one of the largest ethnic groups in East ...
This study attempted to determine the prevalence of timely initiation of breast feeding including factors associated with timely initiation of breastfeeding. Majority 602(98.7%) of mothers practiced ever breastfeeding. This figure is similar to the ever breastfeeding rate of the country (96%) and Oromia region (94.1%) and other regional states in Ethiopia ranging from 93% in Addis Ababa to 99% in Harari [8, 17].. Although World Health Organization (WHO), global and national infant and young child feeding guidelines recommend that all newborns should start breastfeeding immediately (with in the first hour after delivery) and the feeding of colostrums be promoted, the current study showed that 35.0% of mothers squeezed and discarded the colostrums. This is due the cultural belief that colostrums can cause abdominal cramp in the child. The prevalence of pre-lacteal feeding in this study was 17.2% which is lower than the national pre-lacteal feeding reported by others (29%). The findings show that ...

We assessed malaria infection in relation to age, altitude, rainfall, socio-economic factors and coverage of control measures in a representative sample of 11437 people in Amhara, Oromia and SNNP regions of Ethiopia in December 2006-January 2007. Surveys were conducted in 224 randomly selected clusters of 25 households (overall sample of 27884 people in 5708 households). In 11538 blood slides examined from alternate households (83% of those eligible), malaria prevalence in people of all ages was 4.1% (95% CI 3.4-4.9), with 56.5% of infections being Plasmodium falciparum.
Suffice to say that the horse has bolted regarding the building of the dam; it is now 60 per cent complete. There is also a heightened level of national pride in Ethiopia about the project, with the public mantra, "The dam was funded by Ethiopians for Ethiopians." These two factors alone make it hard to imagine Ethiopia ever reversing its plans. The dam will be built.. What, then, is the way forward? A senior Ethiopian official told me that the biggest challenge in negotiating with Egypt is its "attitude towards Africans." He mentioned the threating tones from Morsi and Al-Sisi whilst negotiations were taking place. He also decried an incident which took place in May 2016 during the UN Environmental Assembly in Addis Ababa. The head of the African Diplomatic Corps instituted a formal protest to the assembly after the head of the Egyptian delegation, Mohamad Hisham Shoeir, is alleged to have called Africans "dogs and slaves".. The official went on to explain to me about Ethiopias right to its ...

BASOLIBEN, Ethiopia - When Fikre Molla was preparing to have her baby, she wanted the childbirth traditions she had grown up with, but the safety of professional care in a proper health facility. Yet she lived in Ethiopias rural Amhara Region, 31 km from the nearest health centre. For her safety, she spent the weeks leading up to her due date at a UNFPA-supported maternity waiting home close to the health centre. Such waiting homes offer nutritious meals, close monitoring by health workers, and quick access to skilled birth attendance when the baby arrives.
Background Obesity and overweight are rising worldwide while underweight rates persist in low-income countries. The aim of this study was to examine changes in the prevalence of underweight and overweight/obesity among non-pregnant women aged 15-49 years, and its socio-demographic correlates in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Methods The data are from 2000, 2005 and 2011 nationally representative Ethiopian Demographic and Health Surveys in Addis Ababa. The dependent variable was womens nutritional status measured in terms of body mass index coded in binary outcomes to examine risk of being underweight (|18.5 kg/m2 vs. ≥18.5 kg/m2) or overweight/obese (|25 kg/m2 vs. ≤25 kg/m2). Logistic regression models were used to estimate the strength of associations. Results The prevalence of overweight/obesity increased significantly by 28%; while underweight decreased by 21% between 2000 and 2011. Specifically, the prevalence of urban obesity increased by 43.3% i.e., from 3.0% to 4.3% in about 15 years. Overall,
In a televised meeting June 3, Egyptian politicians suggested attacks against Ethiopia to sabotage the dam. A week later, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi warned that "all options are open" to challenge Ethiopias Nile project.. In response, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn vowed "nothing" and "no one" will stop the dams construction.. Then, last Thursday, Ethiopias parliament unanimously ratified a new accord that replaces colonial-era deals that awarded Egypt veto powers over Nile projects.. The tensions are causing international concern. The head of the African Union urged dialogue and co-operation and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon telephoned both Morsi and Hailemariam..
