Unmet need for COVID-19 vaccination coverage

The average mean travel times to COVID-19 vaccination sites was found to be 75.5 minutes. Integration with population estimates showed an average of 87.2% of the adult population within an hour of a vaccination site. At national level, the coverage rate was 16.70% (95% CI 16.66 – 16.74) in December 2021 and 30.75% (95% CI […]

A vulnerability index for COVID-19

The study highlights the most vulnerable groups in the country and their geographic location. These groups provide an improved understanding of the population characteristics which will help when setting up interventions in response to COVID-19. Three vulnerability indices were used to identify the areas and people who require greater support while addressing health inequities in […]

Spatial access inequities and childhood immunization uptake in Kenya

The research aimed to quantify spatial accessibility to immunizing health facilities and determine its influence on immunization uptake in Kenya while controlling for potential confounders. Poor access to immunization services remains a major barrier to achieving equity and expanding vaccination coverage in many sub-Saharan African countries. In Kenya, the extent to which spatial access affects […]

Determinants of subnational disparities in antenatal care utilisation

Malaria transmission is influenced by climate, land use and deliberate intervention. The study provides quantitative data coThe study shows disparities in the utilization of ANC at sub-county and county level. Sub-counties in the Northern and North-Eastern regions had the lowest utilisation of ANC4. Only twenty sub-counties had ANC4 attendance of over 70% while 18 had […]

Legacy database on malaria prevalence since 1900

Malaria transmission is influenced by climate, land use and deliberate intervention. The study provides quantitative data comprising 50,424 surveys at 36,966 geocoded locations to cover 115 years (1900 – 2015) of malaria history in sub-Saharan Africa. The results show that the African continent has witnessed a long-term decline in the prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum from […]

Severe malaria incidence and transmission intensity

The study assessed the incidence of pediatric severe malaria admissions from 13 hospitals in East Africa from 2006 to 2020. From figure 4, the median fit for the Bayesian regression model is denoted by the thick black line, with 95% and 99% highest density intervals in dark and light blue, respectively. Grey points and vertical […]

Malaria hospitalization in East Africa: age, phenotype and transmission intensity

The research sought to understand the age patterns of disease which is important to consider in targeting interventions. It helps maximize cost-effective impacts e.g. in the new malaria chemoprevention and vaccine initiatives that target young children attending routine immunization services. The study explored the relationships between age and severity of malaria hospitalization versus malaria transmission […]

Research article on access to emergency hospital care provided by the public sector in sub-Saharan Africa in 2015

The study aimed to complete a geocoded inventory of hospital services in Africa in relation to how populations might access these services in 2015, with focus on women of child bearing ag

Study on subnational estimates of factors associated with under-five mortality in Kenya: a spatio-temporal analysis, 1993–2014

Data from multiple sources including all available household sample surveys and population census is used to provide annual estimates of 43 factors known to be associated with changes in U5M at each of the 47 subnational counties used for decentralized health planning in Kenya

Published study on plasmodium falciparum parasite prevalence in East Africa which included updating data for malaria stratification

This paper presents an updated assembly of community parasite survey data in Kenya, mainland Tanzania and Uganda to provide more contemporary predictions of the sub-national malaria prevalence stratification across the sub-region for 2019
