Evidence from 2016 Ethiopian demographic and health survey data: Maternal practice in managing childhood diarrhea at home.
Lowest wealth quantities and low level maternal education increased the likelihood of inadequate maternal practice, and health facilities should emphasize teaching mothers about home based diarrheal management. Expand
Predictors of modern contraceptive use among women and men in Uganda: a population-level analysis
For women and men, both demographic and proximate variables were significantly associated with contraceptive use, although notable differences in effect sizes existed between sexes—especially for age, level of education and parity. Expand
Modelling the impact of stunting on child survival in a rural Ugandan setting
IYCF practices and coverage of expanded programme on immunization (EPI) and ANC in the study population are sub-optimal thus the high prevalence of stunting and child mortality in the region is concluded. Expand
Factors Affecting Contraceptive Use in Ethiopian: A Generalized Linear Mixed Effect Model
Background Ethiopia is the second most populous nations in Africa. Family planning is a viable solution to control such fast-growing population. This study aimed to assess the prevalence ofExpand
Geographic location of health facility and immunization program performance in Hoima district, western Uganda: a health facility level assessment
Proximal location to the central district headquarters was significantly associated with poor immunization program performance and attitudes of health workers in the more urban areas, differences in strategies for outreach site selection and community mobilization in the rural and urban areas were suggested as possible explanations.

Prevalence and determinants of recent HIV testing among older persons in rural Uganda: a cross-sectional study
HIV testing interventions need to target older persons who are 70 years and older, who were less likely to test, as recent HIV testing among older persons in rural Uganda was associated with younger age, self-reported STIs, male circumcision, and sexual activity. Expand
Fertility among women living with HIV in western Ethiopia and its implications for prevention of vertical transmission: a cross-sectional study

DHS maternal mortality indicators: an assessment of data quality and implications for data use.
It is reckoned that sibling data are probably underestimates due to the large gap between estimates in different reporting periods before the survey, and probably greater for females than males. Expand
Direct and indirect estimates of maternal mortality from the sisterhood method.
Reasonable estimates of maternal mortality result from the sisterhood approach where detailed estimates are sought regarding the level trends and distribution of maternal deaths according to age and parity the direct approach may be expected to provide a rich source of data. Expand
Revising unmet need for family planning.
The rationale process and results of revising the definition of unmet need are described, estimates of un met need using the original and revised definitions for all DHS surveys from 1990- 2010 are compared and a comparison is compared. Expand
Of blind alleys and things that have worked: history’s lessons on reducing maternal mortality.
Where preconditions have been met and professionalisation of obstetric care has been adopted in developing countries the same pattern of reduction of maternal mortality was observed be the country still poor (Sri Lanka) or wealthier (Malaysia Thailand). Expand
Estimating maternal mortality: the sisterhood method.
The results indicate a lifetime risk of maternal mortality of 0.0584, or 1 in 17, approximating a maternal mortality ratio of 1,005 per 100,000 live births, which is consistent with previous estimates for this region. Expand
