State of the world's newborns : a report from Saving Newborn Lives by Anthony Costello( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been little change in newborn mortality in the past 20 years, even through proven, cost-effective solutions exist to save many of these young lives. This report reviews the most recent data on the newborn, revealing the alarming poor health and quality of health care for mothers and newborns in virtually all impoverished countries. The report identifies infections, complications of prematurity, and birth asphyxia and injuries as the primary causes of newborn mortality, with low birth weight an important secondary factor. Another major cause of neonatal deaths in developing countries is identified as poor maternal health, especially during pregnancy. The report argues that many of these neonatal deaths can be prevented with three cost-effective solutions that do not depend on highly technical training or sophisticated equipment: (1) tetanus toxoid immunization; (2) skilled health care at delivery; and (3) immediate and exclusive breastfeeding. Further, the report maintains that policymakers, nongovernmental organizations, health care professionals, and community leaders need to collaborate in strengthening existing health care delivery systems to provide expectant mothers and their babies the care they need. A key part to this effort is advocating for and creating policies that address newborns' special needs. The report's appendices include tables providing information on newborn health status and on newborn health services and practices, by country, and as well as each country's rank on the Human Development Index, a composite indicator of development status that includes life expectancy at birth, educational achievement, and real gross domestic product per capita.

Adaptation of a probabilistic method (InterVA) of verbal autopsy to improve the interpretation of cause of stillbirth and neonatal death in Malawi, Nepal, and Zimbabwe by Stefania Vergnano( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background Verbal autopsy (VA) is a widely used method for analyzing cause of death in absence of vital registration systems. We adapted the InterVA method to extrapolate causes of death for stillbirths and neonatal deaths from verbal autopsy questionnaires, using data from Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Nepal. Methods We obtained 734 stillbirth and neonatal VAs from recent community studies in rural areas: 169 from Malawi, 385 from Nepal, and 180 from Zimbabwe. Initial refinement of the InterVA model was based on 100 physician-reviewed VAs from Malawi. InterVA indicators and matrix probabilities for cause of death were reviewed for clinical and epidemiological coherence by a pediatrician-researcher and an epidemiologist involved in the development of InterVA. The modified InterVA model was evaluated by comparing population-level cause-specific mortality fractions and individual agreement from two methods of interpretation (physician review and InterVA) for a further 69 VAs from Malawi, 385 from Nepal, and 180 from Zimbabwe. Results Case-by-case agreement between InterVA and reviewing physician diagnoses for 69 cases from Malawi, 180 cases from Zimbabwe, and 385 cases from Nepal were 83% (kappa 0.76 (0.75 - 0.80)), 71% (kappa 0.41(0.32-0.51)), and 74% (kappa 0.63 (0.60-0.63)), respectively. The proportion of stillbirths identified as fresh or macerated by the different methods of VA interpretation was similar in all three settings. Comparing across countries, the modified InterVA method found that proportions of preterm births and deaths due to infection were higher in Zimbabwe (44%) than in Malawi (28%) or Nepal (20%). Conclusion The modified InterVA method provides plausible results for stillbirths and newborn deaths, broadly comparable to physician review but with the advantage of internal consistency. The method allows standardized cross-country comparisons and eliminates the inconsistencies of physician review in such comparisons
