  • Physical activity containing behavioural interventions for adults living
           with modifiable chronic non-communicable diseases in Africa: a systematic
           mixed-studies review
    • Authors: Igwesi-Chidobe C; Kengne A, Sorinola I, et al.
      Pages: 137 - 148
      Abstract: BackgroundPhysical activity improves physiological, cognitive and psychosocial functioning in chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This study reviewed papers on the effects and patients’ experiences of physical activity interventions for chronic NCDs in Africa.MethodsWe conducted a systematic review of clinical and qualitative studies by searching eight bibliographic databases and grey literature until 19 April 2017. The mixed-methods appraisal and Cochrane Collaboration’s tools were used for quality and risk of bias assessments. Three-stage sequential explanatory syntheses were done.ResultsOne randomized controlled trial (RCT), two non-controlled before and after studies and two qualitative studies of diabetic South African and Reunion patients were included. Exercise and sports unrelated to home and occupational activities were increased in the long term (1 year, moderate quality evidence) and short term immediately after a 4-week intervention (low quality evidence). There was conflicting evidence of intervention effects on home and occupational physical activities. Behaviour-change techniques improving chronic disease knowledge, addressing environmental barriers and stimulating/supporting physical activity were important to patients. Procedure-related components—health professional training and adequate health facilities—were important to patients, but were not addressed.ConclusionHigh quality RCTs are needed to confirm the intervention components for improving physical activity for chronic NCD management in Africa.

  • Predictors of exclusive breastfeeding across three time points in
           Bangladesh: an examination of the 2007, 2011 and 2014 Demographic and
           Health Survey
    • Authors: Blackstone S; Sanghvi T.
      Pages: 149 - 156
      Abstract: BackgroundThe objective of this study was to explore predictors of exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) in Bangladesh using data from 2007, 2011 and 2014, specifically focusing on potential reasons why rates of EBF changed over those time periods.MethodsData on mother/infant pairs with infants <6 months of age were examined at the three time points using the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey. The EBF prevalence, changes in EBF since the previous survey and determinants of EBF at each time period were examined using t-tests, χ2 and multilevel logistic regression.ResultsThe prevalence of EBF was 42.5, 65 and 59.4% in 2007, 2011 and 2014, respectively. The age of the child was significantly associated with EBF across all time points. The largest changes in EBF occurred in the 3- to 5-month age group. Predictors of EBF in this specific age group were similar to overall predictors (e.g. age of the child and region). Participation of the mother in household decisions was a significant predictor in 2014.ConclusionsEBF prevalence in Bangladesh increased between 2007 and 2011 and then decreased between 2011 and 2014. The increase in 2011 may have been the result of widespread initiatives to promote EBF in that time frame. Due to the unexplained decrease in EBF between 2011 and 2014, there is still a need for interventions such as peer counselling, antenatal education and community awareness to promote EBF.

  • Dietary diversity and nutritional status among children in rural Burkina
           Faso
    • Authors: Sié A; Tapsoba C, Dah C, et al.
      Pages: 157 - 162
      Abstract: BackgroundBurkina Faso has a seasonal malnutrition pattern, with higher malnutrition prevalence during the rainy season when crop yields are low. We investigated the association between dietary diversity and nutritional status among children aged 6–59 mo during the low crop yield season in rural Burkina Faso to assess the role of dietary diversity during the lean season on childhood nutritional status.MethodsCaregivers reported the dietary diversity of the past 7 d, consisting of 11 food groups, summed into a scale. Anthropometric measurements were taken from all children. Height-for-age (HAZ), weight-for-height (WHZ) and weight-for-age (WAZ) z-scores were calculated based on 2006 WHO standards. Stunting, wasting and underweight were defined as HAZ, WHZ and WAZ <−2 SD, respectively. Multivariable regression models adjusting for potential confounders including household food insecurity and animal ownership were used to assess the relationship between anthropometric indices and dietary diversity.ResultsOf 251 children enrolled in the study, 20.6% were stunted, 10.0% wasted and 13.9% underweight. Greater dietary diversity was associated with greater HAZ (SD 0.14, 95% CI 0.04 to 0.25) among all children. There was no association between dietary diversity and wasting or mid-upper arm circumference in this study.ConclusionsIncreasing dietary diversity may be an approach to reduce the burden of stunting and chronic malnutrition among young children in regions with seasonal food insecurity.

      Abstract: BackgroundHelping Babies Breathe (HBB), a basic neonatal resuscitation curriculum, improves early neonatal mortality in low-resource settings. Our goal was to determine retention of resuscitation skills by different cadres of providers using the approved HBB Spanish translation in a rural clinic and community hospital in Honduras.MethodsTwelve clinic and 37 hospital providers were trained in 1 d HBB workshops and followed from July 2012 to February 2014. Resuscitation skills were evaluated by objective structured clinical evaluations (OSCEs) at regular intervals. Clinic providers practiced monthly, whereas hospital providers were randomized to monthly practice for 6 months vs three consecutive practices at 3, 5 and 6 months.ResultsIn the rural clinic, follow-up OSCE assessment showed rapid loss of skills by 1 month after HBB training. For all providers, repeated monthly testing resulted in improvements and maintenance of OSCE performance. In the community hospital, over all time points, the group with monthly OSCEs had 2.9 greater odds of passing compared with the group who practiced less frequently. Physicians were found to have 4.3 times greater odds of passing compared with nurses.ConclusionsRapid loss of resuscitation skills occurs after an initial training. Repeated practice leads to retention of skills in all types of providers. Further investigation is warranted to determine the clinical correlation of neonatal outcomes after HBB training.

  • Factors associated with inadequate receipt of components and use of
           antenatal care services in Nigeria: a population-based study
    • Authors: Agho K; Ezeh O, Ogbo F, et al.
      Pages: 172 - 181
      Abstract: BackgroundAntenatal care (ANC) is an essential intervention to improve maternal and child health. In Nigeria, no population-based studies have investigated predictors of poor receipt of components and uptake of ANC at the national level to inform targeted maternal health initiatives. This study aimed to examine factors associated with inadequate receipt of components and use of ANC in Nigeria.MethodsThe study used information on 20 405 singleton live-born infants of the mothers from the 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey. Multivariable logistic regression analyses that adjusted for cluster and survey weights were used to determine potential factors associated with inadequate receipt of components and use of ANC.ResultsThe prevalence of underutilization and inadequate components of ANC were 47.5% (95% CI: 45.2 to 49.9) and 92.6% (95% CI: 91.8 to 93.2), respectively. Common risk factors for underutilization and inadequate components of ANC in Nigeria included residence in rural areas, no maternal education, maternal unemployment, long distance to health facilities and less maternal exposure to the media. Other risk factors for underutilization of ANC were home births and low household wealth.ConclusionThe study suggests that underutilization and inadequate receipt of the components of ANC were associated with amenable factors in Nigeria. Subsidized maternal services and well-guided health educational messages or financial support from the government will help to improve uptake of ANC services.

  • Challenges constraining insulin access in Nepal—a country with no
           local insulin production
    • Authors: Sharma A; Bhandari P, Neupane D, et al.
      Pages: 182 - 190
      Abstract: BackgroundNepal is facing an increasing burden of diabetes and relies almost entirely on insulin imported through India.MethodsWe employed a modified version of the WHO/Health Action International standard survey to assess insulin availability and prices, along with qualitative interviews with insulin retailers (pharmacists) and wholesalers in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.ResultsThe mean availability of the two human insulins listed on the 2011 Nepal Essential Medicine List were 14.3% and 42.85% in the surveyed private- and public-sector pharmacies, respectively, compared with the WHO target of 80% availability. The median consumer price of human insulin cartridges, analogue insulin cartridges and pens was, respectively, 2.1, 4.6 and 5.3 times that of human insulin vials (US$5.54). The insulin cartridges made in India were less expensive (p<0.001) than those made elsewhere. The lowest-paid worker would need to spend between 3 and 17 days’ wages to purchase a monthly insulin supply out of pocket.ConclusionInsulin access is limited in Kathmandu owing to low availability and the highly unaffordable price. Insulin access could improve with the government exploring additional suppliers, pooling insulin tenders, auditing insulin utilization and developing independent prescribing guidelines. Furthermore, there is a need to educate physicians and develop a consensus statement on insulin initiation to curb the growing analogue use and promote rational use.

  • ‘Valuable but incomplete!’ A qualitative study about migrants’
           perspective on health examinations in Stockholm
    • Authors: Shedrawy J; Lönnroth K, Kulane A.
      Pages: 191 - 196
      Abstract: BackgroundA voluntary health examination is offered to asylum seekers in Sweden with the purpose of detecting infectious diseases and identifying other health needs. This study aimed to explore the organization, content and perceived value of the health examination from the perspective of asylum seekers.MethodsSemi-structured interviews were conducted with 18 migrants recruited from different settings in Stockholm. Data were transcribed verbatim and analysed using thematic analysis in relation to the availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality framework.ResultsParticipants reported positive aspects of the health examination while raising important concerns, categorized into the following themes: availability—despite being available, the service was considered to be delayed with perceived implication for infection control; accessibility—migrants experienced no physical or economic barrier to access the health examination, especially when it was performed through a mobile clinic, however, they had limited access to information; acceptability and quality—migrants trusted the health staff, however, the examination lacked important aspects related to mental health and dental care needs, among other health needs.ConclusionHealth examinations are valued by participants but failed to identify and address many perceived health needs. Mobile clinics seem a practical strategy to improve accessibility.

  • Implementation of a human papillomavirus screen-and-treat model in Mwanza,
           Tanzania: training local healthcare workers for sustainable impact
    • Authors: Bernstein M; Hari A, Aggarwal S, et al.
      Pages: 197 - 201
      Abstract: BackgroundThe purpose of this study is to evaluate the development of a 1-wk screening campaign and efforts towards the implementation of a sustainable system that addresses cervical cancer in Mwanza, Tanzania with a screen-and-treat model utilizing visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid (VIA) and cryotherapy.MethodsIn partnership with CureCervicalCancer (CCC), a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, CA, USA, 11 medical students at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine established a model for sustainable human papillomavirus screening practices in Mwanza, Tanzania. This study both quantitatively and qualitatively assesses the successes and limitations of the program model.ResultsDuring the 5-day training, a total of 614 women attended the screenings and 556 women were screened with VIA, of whom 10.6% (n=59) were VIA positive and 89.4% (n=499) were VIA negative. Of those who were VIA positive, 83.1% (n=49) received cryotherapy while 16.9% (n=10) did not due to suspicion of advanced cancer (n=7), refusal to receive cryotherapy (n=2) or pregnancy (n=1).ConclusionsThe screen-and-treat model for the identification and treatment of precancerous cervical lesions is an effective public health intervention with the potential to impact women by providing the tools and education needed by local healthcare professionals. However, limitations common to resource-poor settings, such as continuity of funding, loss to follow-up and transportation costs, remain barriers to sustainability.

  • Effect of knowledge and perceptions of risks on Ebola-preventive
           behaviours in Ghana
    • Authors: Tenkorang E.
      Pages: 202 - 210
      Abstract: BackgroundLimited studies exist on the effects of knowledge and risk perceptions in Ebola-preventive behaviours in Ghana.MethodsUsing data collected from 800 respondents in 40 randomly selected communities in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana, this study employed hierarchical linear modelling to examine the effects of individual- and community-level factors on Ebola-preventive behaviours.ResultsThe study found individual- and community-level factors are significantly associated with Ebola-preventive behaviours. Respondents with greater knowledge about Ebola were more likely to engage in Ebola-preventive behaviours. In addition, there were significant changes in risk perception from the time the disease had peaked in neighbouring countries to the time data were collected. Most importantly, respondents who perceived themselves to have a high risk of contracting Ebola at the time of the survey were significantly less likely to engage in Ebola-preventive behaviours. Compared with Christians, Muslims were significantly less likely to engage in Ebola-preventive behaviours. Findings from the multilevel analysis indicated significant differences across communities. Communities expressing worry about a potential Ebola outbreak were more likely to engage in Ebola-preventive behaviours.ConclusionThe findings suggest the importance of adopting behaviour change interventions that address Ebola at both the individual and community level, especially in the event of a future outbreak in Ghana.

  • A survey of healthcare-seeking practices and related stigma among
           community- and street-based children in Cambodia
    • Authors: Rivenbark J; Martyn L, Whetten K, et al.
      Pages: 211 - 213
      Abstract: BackgroundGlobally, street children comprise a growing population of vulnerable children. Understanding how they interact with healthcare systems is fundamental to efforts to improve their health and well-being.MethodsWe surveyed 75 street- and community-based children in Battambang, Cambodia regarding their healthcare-seeking practices and related stigma.ResultsFor demographically similar street and community children, hospitals and pharmacies were preferred healthcare institutions, with this choice being motivated by the caretaker’s decision or cost. Street children reported increased fear of being refused treatment.ConclusionsStreet children and demographically similar community children have similar healthcare-seeking practices and preferences, although street children face increased stigmatization.
