Fine resolution mapping of population age-structures

Using geolocated household surveys data to predict the proportions of population under 5 years, the results show that southern Nigeria had lower proportions of children under 5 as compared to the northern regions. For example, Kano, Katsina and Kaduna states had some of the highest proportions of population. The gaps in estimated number of bed-nets […]

Health facilities and cases of fever. a The distribution of public health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa by type. b Aggregate estimates of cases of fever treated at Administrative level 1 per 1000 children under five (weighted by the population at risk)

Variation in patterns of febrile case management in sub-Saharan Africa

The study triangulated household survey data for fever in children under the age of five years with georeferenced public health facility databases (n = 86,442 facilities) in 29 countries across sub-Saharan Africa, to estimate the probability of seeking treatment for fever at public facilities. Given national healthcare coverage gaps, understanding treatment-seeking behavior for fever is crucial for […]

Access to emergency hospital care

Timely access to emergency care can substantially reduce mortality. The paper 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 age. A geocoded inventory of 4908 public hospitals across 48 countries and islands of sub-Saharan Africa, […]

Subnational estimates of factors associated with under-five mortality in Kenya

We gathered rich insights into child survival in Kenya by mapping patterns over 22 years. We set out to explore disparities and inequities by estimating the coverage and prevalence of 43 determinants. This we did for each of Kenya’s 47 counties every year between 1993 and 2014. These studies give granular insights into the situation in regions across […]

Under five mortality

Trends in under-five mortality(U5M) in Kenya Vital statistics remain the bedrock for population and social policies providing a country’s decision-makers with critical information for resource allocation, planning and health priorities. Yet, in 2021, in sub-Saharan Africa, few countries benefit from reliable and timely evidence on new births and information of who dies of what relying […]
