Trends in marriage and contraception in Sub-Saharan Africa : a longitudinal perspective on factors of fertility decline by Michel Garenne( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study presents an analysis of the relationships between trends in age at marriage, trends in contraceptive use and fertility trends in 33 sub-Saharan African countries. The Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) provided all of the data on marriage, contraception and fertility. Median age at marriage was defined as the age at which half of a cohort is ever-married. Contraceptive use was defined as ever-use of modern contraception by age 40. Fertility was defined as cumulated fertility by age 40. Median age at marriage of synthetic cohorts increased by some 3.3 years between 1950 and 2005 in urban areas, and some 1.1 years in rural areas. Trends in age at marriage had little correlation with trends in level of education, or with trends in income per capita. Fertility trends also had virtually no correlation with trends in age at marriage in countries studied. Contraceptive use increased in all countries studied. Trends in contraceptive use were highly correlated with fertility trends. Overall, in urban areas fertility was reduced by 49% by year 2005, while ever-use of contraception reached 49% of the population. In rural areas, fertility was reduced by 14% by year 2005, while ever-use of contraception reached 28% of the population. In multivariate analysis, trends in ever-use of contraception explained about half of fertility trends. In contrast, whatever the model, the role of age at marriage appeared small, explaining less than 10% of fertility decline, and was further compounded by the emergence of premarital fertility, especially in urban areas. --

The Niakhar high-titer measles vaccine trial, 1987-1990 by Michel Garenne( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reports the methodology and findings of a randomized controlled vaccine trial conducted in Senegal in 1987-1990. Two high-titer measles vaccines of different strains (Edmonston-Zagreb and Schwarz) were compared with a standard vaccine (the Schwarz strain) among infants aged 5 to 10 months. Comparison focused on clinical efficacy, immunogenicity and safety. Although both high-titer vaccines induced an immunogenic response even when given at the age of 5 months, they induced a lower level of antibodies, had more vaccine failures, and were not safe, inducing an excess mortality within

Niakhar, mémoires et perspectives : recherches pluridisciplinaires sur le changement en Afrique by Valérie Delaunay( )

1 edition published in 2020 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fondé en 1962 en zone rurale à 150 km de Dakar, en pays Sereer, l'observatoire de Niakhar est le plus ancien observatoire de population en Afrique encore en activité. Au cœur d'une histoire scientifique et humaine originale, il a permis d'assurer, depuis sa création, le suivi sanitaire, démographique, social, économique et environnemental de plus de deux générations. Les résultats de recherche de Niakhar, avec des indicateurs suivis dans le temps long, ont éclairé et accompagné les politiques nationales et internationales en matière de santé, notamment pour la prévention du paludisme. En revisitant 50 années de recherche sur le site de Niakhar, cet ouvrage décrit et analyse la construction de cette plate-forme d'observation prospective pluridisciplinaire. Il illustre l'intérêt de l'approche sur le long terme dans les différents domaines de recherche et ouvre une réflexion sur les enjeux éthiques particuliers à cet instrument de collecte. Enfin, il propose des pistes d'évolution méthodologique et de gouvernance pour la recherche. Cette première synthèse sur l'observatoire de Niakhar permettra à l'État sénégalais et aux décideurs ouest-africains, avec les institutions internationales et les scientifiques, de disposer de bases concrètes pour optimiser ces plates-formes de recherche et les mobiliser dans la perspective des objectifs de développement durable
