  • Perceived Sexual and Reproductive Health Needs and Service Utilization
           among Higher Secondary School Students in Urban Nepal

    • Authors: Kiran Bam; Fariha Haseen, Rajendra Kumar BC, M. Sophia Newman, Asiful Haider Chaudhary, Rajshree Thapa, Ismat Bhuyia
      Pages: 36 - 45
      Abstract: Introduction: Adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) is best addressed through the promotion of responsible, healthy behavior and the provision of age-appropriate services. This study aimed to assess Nepali adolescents’ perceived ASRH service needs and factors influencing their utilization of ASRH services. Methodology: This descriptive cross-sectional quantitative study was based on a structured, self-administered questionnaire of adolescents aged 15-19 (n = 338) in three government-run higher secondary schools in Bhaktapur, Nepal. Descriptive data was used to summarize socio demographics, sexual activity, and awareness and usage of SRH services. Chi-square and Fisher’s exact tests and binary logistical regression modeling were used to identify factors influencing ASRH service utilization. Results: ASRH service utilization was 9.2% among all respondents. Service utilization was lower among female (4.3%) than males (12.5%). Fifteen percent of students had ever felt a need to access ASRH services, a larger percentage than those who had accessed ASRH services (9.2%). Almost 37% intend to utilize ASRH services in the future. Students attending secondary schools that included ASRH in the school’s health services were 15 times more likely to utilize ASRH services(Adjusted OR: 14.85). The distance from health facility (Adjusted OR: 12.80) and being sexually active within 12 months (Adjusted OR: 10.31) were found to be associated with ASRH service utilization. Those who perceived barriers to services were more likely to utilize the services (Adjusted OR: 7.05).Lack of confidential services was the biggest barrier (71.4%),while friend and peer group influence (86.7%) was a major motivator to access ASRH services. Conclusion: ASRH service utilization among the adolescents is very low, with a gap between perceived needs and service utilization. Students who have accessed ASRH services are more likely to report that they perceived barriers, demonstrating that logistical difficulties may be considerable. Accessibility should be expanded.

      Abstract: Background: Among Nigerian Military Personnel (NMP), HIV prevalence has been reported to be higher than in the general population due to several factors. Data on HIV among the military are difficult to obtain and comprehensive program for the military in Sub-Saharan Africa were not well coordinated. This study assessed sexual history, behavior and practice of HIV/AIDS prevention among military recruits at Depot Nigeria Army in Zaria Nigeria. Materials and Methods: It was a cross sectional descriptive study carried out on February, 2011 with a sample of 300 army recruits selected by a stratified random sampling technique. Information on socio-demographic characteristics, sexual history, behavior and practice of HIV/AIDS prevention were collected using structured, self–administered questionnaire, and blood samples collected were screened using Determine® and and Uni-gold® test kits for HIV antibodies. Stat pak® test kit was used as a tie-breaker. The data collected were cleaned and entered into SPSS version 15.0 and results presented in tables and statistical significance was set at p

    • Authors: Mazen Almasri; Dina Amin, Anas F AboOla, Jamil Shargawi
      Pages: 56 - 59
      Abstract: Objective: to review the practice of maxillofacial trauma surgery in Makka city, Saudi Arabia, as road traffic accidents is considered a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the kingdom. Materials and methods: a chart review of all the maxillofacial trauma cases that visited the major hospital in the city, Alnoor specialist hospital (NSH), from October 2005 to October 2013 was collected. A total of 1132 patients’ records were retrieved. Amongst, 965 maxillofacial injuries were included in the study as completed information was found. Charts of incomplete records, soft tissue injuries only, or solitary dental injury were excluded. Then, pertinent information such as age, gender, residence status, and fracture pattern were extracted, tabulated, and correlated. Results: it was presented that males were affected four times more than females (ratio of 4.4:1), of an age ranged from 3 years old to 97 with a mean of 51 years old, and patients of 1 to 16 years old counting 135 cases (11.9%), while the age between 17 – 45 years counting 856 (75.7%), and the age 46 – 97 counting 139 (12.3%). The majority of injuries was involving the lower facial third (mandible) by 523 cases (54.19%), then the middle third that include Zygomatic maxillary complex (ZMC) by 399 cases (41.3%; p=0.006), orbital floor by 25 cases (2.5%), and upper third (nasal, ethmoid, orbital, and frontal bar) fractures of 18 cases (1.8%). The ratio of Saudi patients to non Saudi was found to be 1.89:1. Conclusion: The maxillofacial injuries in Makka city are mainly affecting male patients aged between 17-45 years old with the mandible and middle face fractures being most commonly injured respectively.
