Severe acute malnutrition registration logbook and patient charts were used as a source of data. Data were entered in to Epi-data version 3. The recovery rate was
Research Proposal: Long Term Impact of Child Malnutrition on Adulthood
A Closer Look at Hunger and Undernutrition in Ethiopia - Country Case Studies
Metrics details. Although there are inequalities in child health and survival in the Democratic Republic of Congo DRC , the influence of distal determinants such as geographic location on children's nutritional status is still unclear. We investigate the impact of geographic location on child nutritional status by mapping the residual net effect of malnutrition while accounting for important risk factors. We examine spatial variation in under-five malnutrition with flexible geo-additive semi-parametric mixed model while simultaneously controlling for spatial dependence and possibly nonlinear effects of covariates within a simultaneous, coherent regression framework based on Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques. Individual data records were constructed for children.
