Malaria and Nutritional Status among Under-fives

4468 руб.
Malaria and malnutrition are thought to coexist more particularly among the impoverished communities, with children in the Sub-Saharan Africa bearing the greatest burden. Both protein energy malnutrition (PEM) and malaria have immunosuppressive effect with massive consequences on the quality of life and chances of survival in vulnerable groups, more specifically among the under-fives. The relationship between malaria and malnutrition is complex. Some studies have found that malaria leads to compromised nutritional status while in others compromised nutritional status increases susceptibility to malaria infection. On the other hand, there is evidence that malnutrition can protectagainst malaria. Improvement of nutritional status among the under-fives may be one of the effective strategies/interventions of prevention and management of malaria and subsequently anaemia morbidities in regions where malnutrition and malaria are common public health problems and sometimes simulteanously exist. Interventions to mitigate malaria and malnutrition are likely to be more efficient and effective if an integrated approach is designed, adopted and implimented.

Slum dogs can become millionaire in the movies, but the real world scenario is totally different. In fact, they lead a very miserable life & suffer problems in their everyday life. Bangladesh is a South-Asian densely populated small country. The population of the capital city Dhaka has been projected at 17.6 million, with up to 60% living in the slums. In slum to see the feeding pattern under two years children it is found that the rate of early initiation of breastfeeding (colostrum) is improved but prevalence of prelacteal feeding is still high & exclusive breastfeeding rate is far away from acceptable range, though Bangladesh has a strong culture of breastfeeding. In complementary feeding most common is rice, vegetables & lentil. Prevalence of under nutrition is more in slum area than rural or urban. Due to poverty, slum mothers feed nutritionally inadequate, unsafe and less energy dense food to their child. Maximum slum peoples’ monthly income is below the urban poverty line. Improper child caring and irresponsive feeding practice causes increase risk of malnutrition of slum children. It indicates that the children of under two years are in critical nutritional stress.

Malaria is a persistent public health problem and is the leading cause of death among young African children, killing one child every second. The disease also seriously affects children’s future: they may suffer neurological after-effects and impaired learning ability. Malaria is hyper-endemic in Ghana. It remains a major public health problem, requiring focused interventions including prompt and effective scientific studies. Therefore, this study, applied a binary logistic regression model to analyze predictors influencing malaria in-hospital mortality using inpatient morbidity and mortality returns register from the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the northern region of Ghana. The study comprised five chapters in all. The results showed that there is a linear relationship between malaria mortality and the predictors. Again, it was found that the predictors; referral status, distance, treatment type and length of stay were relevant in predicting malaria mortality. This book, therefore, provides a scientific resource for health personnel, the health ministries, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other stakeholders in the public health sector.

In this study of the Health and Nutritional Status of the Hmars of Aizawl District, Mizoram, the findings seem to have certain implications for the application of the demographic transition theory. It is well known that the second stage of demographic transition theory predicts that improvement in standard of living and health facilities results in population growth due to high fertility and low mortality. The poor performance of family planning welfare programmes and/or low practice of family planning methods of contraception enhances the fertility rate or population growth. Fertility rate is still high in the population, thereby suggesting a need for greater political will to implement family planning programmes. The co-existence of under- and over-nutrition (as indicated by BMI) was also seen in the Hmar population. Double burden of under- and over-nutrition exerts considerable impact on the economy and health system in many developing countries. The increasing urbanization, changes in standards of living, dietary patterns and occupational work patterns are the key factors to risks of the epidemic of obesity and associated morbidity and mortality.

Orphans are one of the vulnerable groups in the society; this is because of their peculiarity. The major challenge faced by government, international organizations and NGOs in their response to orphanhood is lack of data on the situation of orphans. The study was done to assess the feeding practices and nutritional status of orphans in orphanages so as to provide evidence for appropriate nutrition intervention programmes geared towards improvement of orphans’ lives. A cross sectional study was conducted on 200 orphans aged between 0-5 years living in ten orphanages. The prevalence of malnutrition among the orphans showed that 45.5% of them were underweight, 63.5% of the children were stunted while 47.5% were wasted. There was high prevalence of zinc deficiency (60.0%) in relation to 30.0% of iron and 20.0% of vitamin A deficiencies among the orphans. The prevalence of anaemia was 42.5%. The study showed that feeding practice was faulty. These deficiencies were associated with poor feeding practices, low caregiver to child ratio (1:5) and low socio-economic status. This study shows that malnutrition is still of public health important in Nigeria and it needs urgent attention.

Most Indian tribes are concentrated in heavily forested areas that combine inaccessibility with limited political or economic significance. Historically, the economy of most tribes was subsistence agriculture or hunting and gathering. Tribal members traded with outsiders for the few necessities they lacked, such as salt and iron. Lack of personal hygiene, poor sanitation, poor mother-child health services health serviced, managed care. The benefits covered under a health contract, absence of health education, lack of national preventive programmes and lack of health services are responsible for the poor health of the tribals. Problems like in-sanitary food supplies, water contamination, and poor food intake reflect on the health status of tribals. The tropical diseases like malaria are still widespread and rampant in the tribal areas. Hence, better nutrition and good environmental health are the important.

Homo sapiens sapiens is the scientific name of modern human with diversified biological and social variation among the same species. From the beginning of human origin biology and culture ruin parallel to its present form. Freedman (1976) has defined nutritional anthropology as ‘the study of the interrelationship between diet and culture and their mutual influence upon one another’. Nutritional status is the present body status, of a person or a population, related to their state of nourishment (the consumption and utilization of nutrients). The nutritional status is a major, modifiable and powerful element in promoting health, preventing and treating diseases and improving the quality of life. The nutritional status of a community is the sum of the nutritional status of the individual who form that community. The main objective of a “comprehensive” nutritional survey is to obtain precise information on the prevalence and geographic distribution of nutritional problem of a given community, and identification of individuals or population groups “at risk” or in greatest need of assistance. Anthropometric measurements play a very important role in the assessment of nutrition in human

Malaria, a blood parasitic disease is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity particularly among children and pregnant women because they are most at risk in many developing countries, especially those in Sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the deaths due to malaria could be averted if care-takers recognized the signs and symptoms of malaria and instituted appropriate measures without delay. Early recognition followed by correct management is a key strategy for malaria control in endemic areas. The effectiveness of this strategy requires an understanding of care- seeking patterns including the actions the care-takers initiate in response to an episode of childhood febrile illness since they greatly influence the severity of the disease. A health facility-based descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out in a rural District of Kenya (a malaria endemic area), where caretakers seeking treatment for their children aged under-five years who tested positive for malaria parasites were recruited into the study. The main objective was to determine health care practices during the illness and their effect on the severity of the illness.

Malaria is an endemic public health tropical disease which account for over two-third infant mortality and about one-third maternal morbidity and mortality in Sub-Sahara Africa. Intermittent Prevention Treatment of Malaria Provides information on most innovative methods of ensuring effective treatment of malaria. Malaria in pregnancy is a serious problem in the tropics. Its consequences include maternal, fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Although Intermittent Preventive Treatment (IPT) is effective in preventing malaria in pregnancy, little is known about health workers knowledge of it as well as their compliance with its guidelines. This study therefore assessed the level of knowledge, perception and practices of IPT of malaria among health workers in Nigeria. IPT is a better malaria prevention intervention than the old chemo-prophylactic measure. I recommend this thesis to clinicians, public health experts and researchers.

Malaria is an important vector borne infectious disease.Congenital malaria is defined as the presence of malaria parasite in the erythrocyte or peripheral blood smear of the new borne babies from 24hours to 7days of life. It was considered rare in endemic areas until recent studies started reporting high prevalence rates. Congenital malaria is increasing reported among babies born to mothers residing in endemic areas. Given the high morbidity and mortality rates associated with malaria (300 million clinical cases and about one million deaths each year), it became pertinent to determine its current status among new born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Malaria causes a global estimate of 300 million clinical cases and around one million deaths each year .It is a major problem in tropical and subtropical countries and can be transmitted vertically from placenta of a pregnant woman to her foetus or perinataly during labour. The risk of malaria infection during pregnancy can result in maternal death or to spontaneous abortion in up to 60% of cases.The prenatal and neonatal mortality may vary from 15 to 70%.

Such relevant programmes may go a long way in improving the quality of life of the most significant but yet neglected section of the population i.e., the girl children, “The mothers-to-be”.The findings of the present study indicate that both rural and urban poor have poor nutritional status, high incidence of calorie deficiency, protein and other micro nutrient deficiencies, anaemia due to lower intakes of iron and protein rich foods, more physical activity and poor socio-economic status.

This study explores the pathways through which individual and household factors are associated with changes in child nutritional status. In this study the concept of nutrition deprivation is used in two ways: firstly as indicated by child’s anthropometric measures, and secondly in terms of food consumption. The main question is how time, individual and household factors influence child nutritional status. The study uses the Pakistan Panel Data covering four rural districts of Pakistan. A child health framework is employed to establish the mechanism of child nutritional status by linking the various factors at child, household and community levels. This framework specifies poverty as the root cause of malnutrition. Various statistical modelling techniques for analysing the longitudinal data are used in this study, e.g. growth curve models. The results indicate poor nutritional status of children while associations are found between poverty and stunting moreover chronic poverty is associated with wasting. Finally, food consumption patterns mostly revolve around the staple food, and even in the top expenditure quintile this pattern remains persistent.

Autism is one of the serious developmental disabilities affecting children world wide and is increasing in epidemic proportions. Research on these children has shown that dietary intervention results in tangible improvement in their nutritional status, behavioural pattern and also their well being. The biochemical parameters improved after dietary supplementation with autism friendly nutrients containing probiotics. There was a marked reduction in the atypical behaviours with a moderate improvement in food behavior. A significant improvement was observed in their functional skills. Nutrition education to the parents proved to be the need of the hour since they were not aware of the scientific basis of nutrition intervention. The supplementary foods developed were allergen free and additive free and were liked by the children and the parents. The parents were satisfied about the gradual improvement in the behaviour and functional skills of their child. The outcome of this research throws light on the path of this difficult subject in understanding the problem of autism. Such effort is hoped to leave an impact at national and global level in tackling the problem of autism children.

This book explains the impact of farm technologies and gender dynamics on household food security and nutritional status of under-fives in Busia and Vihiga districts of Western Province, Kenya. Through qualitative and quantitative methods, the study elucidates the link between farm technologies, gender issues and household food security. The author observes that the use of farm technologies is low among smallholders and contributes to low agricultural productivity and income. The study shows that the education level of household heads,their contact with extension personnel and household headship have a significant effect on household food security. De jure female-headed households were found to be the most vulnerable to food insecurity and malnutrition. The author concludes that through capacity building and access to financial and physical capital, female-headed households have the potential of increasing agricultural production just like male-headed households. This book recommends the intensive use of farm technologies by smallholders through efficient extension service and efficient credit service system. The book is a must-read for agricultural policy makers and researchers.
