    Contribution of household environment factors to urban childhood mortality in Mozambique2004In: East African Medical Journal, ISSN 0012-835X, Vol. 81, no 8, p. 408-414Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: Household environment factors are known to be associated with child mortality in urban and rural areas of many developing countries. In Mozambique, no study to date has addressed this relationship. This study is aimed to access the contribution of household environment factors to urban childhood mortality in Mozambique.DESIGN: Retrospective follow-up study.SETTING: Urban Mozambique.SUBJECTS: One thousand and forty eight children born in urban areas of Monzambique within five years of the 1997 Demographic and Health Survey.METHODS: Cox regression analysis was performed on a sample of 1048 children born in urban areas of Mozambique within five years of the 1997 Demographic and Health Survey.RESULTS: Children of mother's who lived in households with no toilet facility or with well as a source of drinking water had a high risk of dying compared to children who lived in households with flush toilet and piped water.CONCLUSION: Type of toilet facility and source of drinking water play an important role in the risk of childhood mortality in urban areas of Mozambique and the relationship seems to be mediated partly by demographic and socioeconomic factors.

    Inequalities in under-five mortality in Mozambique: differentials by region of residence and ethnic affiliation of the mother2006In: East African Medical Journal, ISSN 0012-835X, Vol. 83, no 5, p. 259-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To explore regional and ethnic differentials in under-five mortality in Mozambique in relation to other determinants.DESIGN: Retrospective follow-up study.SETTING: Mozambique.RESULTS: Compared to children of Xitsonga mother's, children of Emakua and Cisena mother's had a mortality risk of 1.47 (CI = 1.06-1.90) and 1.21 (CI = 1.00-1.62) respectively. The excess mortality risks were partly explained by demographic, household environment, socioeconomic factors including region of residence.CONCLUSION: Ethnic affiliation of the mother (measured by the first language the mother spoke) was statistically associated with under-five mortality in Mozambique. Children of mothers of Emakua and Cisena ethnic affiliations and living in the North and Central regions had the worst survival chances. The relation between mother's ethnicity and under-five mortality was largely explained by demographic, socioeconomic and environmental factors.
