Among children between 2 and 5 years of age, we also report similar rates of malnutrition than those in the general population of children under five years in West and Central Africa (39 % and 12 % for stunting and wasting respectively). We observed that among HIV-infected children, chronic malnutrition was more frequent than other types. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

The resulting book: Contingent Lives: Fertility, Time, and Aging in West Africa, (University of Chicago Press; contributions by Fatoumatta Banja). This work confronted Western views of the life course and its accompanying socialities, which equate aging with the passage of linear time, with a West African model that explicitly inverts this. The determinants of unintended fertility are complex, not easily reduced to factors such as lack of education, unfamiliarity with contraception and abortion, or unavailability of services. Child fosterage in West Africa, for example, "breaks down household economic boundaries and spreads the impact of additional children on family resources.
Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to undernutrition; undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and delays recovery. The interaction between undernutrition and infection can create a potentially lethal cycle of worsening illness and deteriorating nutritional status.

Ethnographic studies in West Africa show that the practice of sending children away to be raised by relatives and nonrelatives is widespread among many ethnic groups.
This paper is an attempt to explore the demographic relevance of the practice. The fostering information is obtained from two sources: the responses given by women to the question on children away from home, and by linking all Cited by: 4.

Prevalence rates from late s demographic and health surveys show that the proportion of non-orphaned children younger than 15 living away from their parents is around 20% in West Africa and more than 25% in Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire and Senegal (Pilon, ).
Anthropological field research shows a proportion of foster children even greater than that revealed in demographic surveys, which are less able to pick up informal forms Cited by: A total of 11, pregnant women were included in the analysis.

This article examines some of the existing literature on child fosterage and uses it to highlight understudied aspects of the current situation of children orphaned through AIDS in South Africa.
Of particular concern are the points of continuity and change in fosterage patterns before and after the onset of the epidemic in South Africa. InNigeria’s estimatedstillbirths accounted for % of the million estimated global stillbirths.
This suggests that Nigeria still makes substantial contribution to the global burden of stillbirths. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and identify the causes and factors associated with stillbirth in eight referral hospitals in Nigeria.

We use longitudinal data from rural Malawi to examine the effects of family transitions on the prevalence and incidence of child fostering, or children residing apart from their living parents. We find that between 7 % and 15 % of children aged 3–14 are out-fostered over the two-year intersurvey period.

This study estimated the prevalence of anaemia and associated factors in a probability sample of children aged months in Cape Verde, West Africa. Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were estimated from a hierarchical model for multiple analysis to assess the association between anaemia and explanatory variables.
