Polygyny and childhood immunisation in Ethiopia: is there an association?

Sibiya, Johan Mduduzi January 2016 (has links)
Master's degree research report submitted to the Faculty of Humanities, in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the MA degree in Demography and Population Studies, 2016. / BACKGROUND: Childhood vaccination has proved to be one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions in the world. However, one in eleven children in Ethiopia die before their fifth birthday, mostly as a result of vaccine preventable diseases and childhood immunisation coverage remains very low by any standard in the country. Little is known about the linkage between family structure and child health-seeking behaviour in Ethiopia where polygyny is common. This study examines the association between the type family structure with a particular interest in polygynous family structure and childhood immunisation among children aged 12 to 60 months in Ethiopia. METHODOLOGY: Data from the 2011 Ethiopia Demographic and Health Survey, containing a sample of 3 188 children aged 12-60 months were analysed and the vaccination history of children in relation to selected mother and child characteristics were examined. Bivariate tests as well as binary logistic regression models were used to examine the levels of childhood immunisation and the association between family structure and immunisation in Ethiopia. RESULTS: The data analysis revealed that 27% of Ethiopian children were immunised, 17.4% of children from polygynous households, and 27% of children in single-parent and monogamous households were immunised. Overall family structure was not found to be significantly associated with childhood immunisation. Geographical region, poverty status, mother’s age, parity, antenatal care and mother’s place of delivery were found to be significant determinants of child immunisation in Ethiopia. CONCLUSION: Complete immunisation coverage among children aged 12-60 months remains very low by any standard in Ethiopia. Findings show that although a polygynous family structure is not a significant determinant of childhood immunisation it has a positive effect on it. Improved awareness of child immunisation services among mothers would greatly increase immunisation coverage. / GR 2017

Refugee lives and the politics of suffering in Somali Ethiopia

Zarowsky, Christina. January 2001 (has links)
This thesis examines the lifeworlds of Somali returnees in Ethiopia. Their experience of flight and return is distinctive, shaped by the history and culture of the Somali people and the political and economic conditions of this part of Africa. In emphasizing this distinctiveness, this thesis is an implicit critique of recent efforts by academics and aid agencies to homogenize the experience of refugees in this region and elsewhere. In Ethiopia, "development" and humanitarian aid, in interaction with political contests at many levels, provide the context for interpreting refugee experience and action. Globally, the most powerful of the reductionist accounts is based on the "trauma model" of refugee experience. In this model, "refugee experience" has come to be virtually synonymous with "psychosocial" and, in turn, "mental health" and "post-traumatic stress disorder" (PTSD). Somali refugees and returnees in Ethiopia, however, do not address violence, death, and war-related distress in a framework of psychological medicine, with its goal of reducing psychological, emotional and physiological symptoms of individual distress. Rather, such distress is predominantly assimilated into the framework of politics, with its goals of survival and restitution. Emotion, and talking about emotion, evoke complex individual and collective memories that situate individual and local community experience within, or in juxtaposition to, other realities: competing powers such as the Ethiopian and other states, dispossession, and the precariousness of survival in a harsh natural and political environment. Historical narratives, collective memory, anger, and the rhetorics of development and humanitarian aid play important roles in these communities' efforts to rebuild social networks and what they refer to as a "decent human life."

The influence of schooling on the nutritional knowledge, attitudes and practices of Ethiopian school children and mothers

Girma, Beshah January 1992 (has links)
The effect of schooling on nutritional knowledge, attitudes and nutritional outcomes in Ethiopia was investigated. Data were obtained in late 1989 in Debre Birhan in Shoa province from three groups: 267 mothers, 114 clinic users and six primary schools with a total of 528 students. Mothers and students were administered tests measuring nutritional knowledge and attitudes. The nutritional status of children age 6-31 months was evaluated by measurement of the weight and height. Schooling, particularly upper secondary schooling, was found significantly influence nutritional knowledge and nutritional outcomes. A causal model is presented which suggests that modern nutritional knowledge, together with the educational level of the mother, is immensely important in influencing nutritional practices. The study suggests that while schooling influences nutritional knowledge and nutritional outcomes, greater attention must be given to improving instruction in nutrition at the primary and lower secondary level.
