A health impact evaluation was conducted in conjunction with the Imo State Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Project in Nigeria. The project consisted of a package of water supply, sanitation, and health and hygiene education given by village-based workers. The evaluation was a quasi-experimental study covering pre-, peri- and post-intervention periods.(More)
Morbidity due to dracunculiasis (guinea worm disease) and diarrhoea in persons of all ages, and nutritional status of young children, were used as health impact indicators in the evaluation of the Imo State Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Project in south-eastern Nigeria. Data were collected using repeated cross-sectional surveys and longitudinal(More)
A total of 101 Campylobacter isolates from Nigerian children with or without gastroenteritis were biotyped and serogrouped by using the Lior typing schemes (H. Lior, J. Clin. Microbiol. 20:636-640, 1984; H. Lior, D. L. Woodward, J. A. Edgar, L. J. Laroche, and P. Gill, J. Clin. Microbiol. 15:761-768, 1982). Fifty-three (52.5%) of the isolates were(More)
From patients in Nigeria with acute gastroenteritis, strains of Yersinia were isolated from 14 (1.3%) of 1082 specimens of faeces examined specifically for yersiniae by direct plating and after cold enrichment. Clinical significance was ascribed to six isolates of Y. enterocolitica (serotypes 03, 05,27 and 09) but not to seven isolates of Y. intermedia or(More)
Ten antisera, prepared against nine selected strains of group-G streptococci and a strain of group-A streptococci of M-type 12, were used to serotype 102 isolates of group-G streptococci by means of precipitation reactions between the sera and hot-acid extracts of the streptococci. Fifty-six (54.9%) of the streptococci could be typed; eight serotypes were(More)
Stool specimen from 994 patients with Acute Diarrhoeal Diseases were processed for bacterial agents known to be responsible for acute diarrhoea. These were from patients seen at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital over a 9 month period. The pattern that emerged showed Shigella isolates made up by 36 flexneri; 29 boydii, 21 dysenteriae and 4 sonnei;(More)
