Shared component modelling of early childhood anaemia and malaria in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda

Danielle J. Roberts & Temesgen Zewotir
Abstract Background Malaria and anaemia contribute substantially to child morbidity and mortality. In this study, we sought to jointly model the residual spatial variation in the likelihood of these two correlated diseases, while controlling for individual-level, household-level and environmental characteristics. Methods A child-level shared component model was utilised to partition shared and disease-specific district-level spatial effects. Results The results indicated that the spatial variation in the likelihood of malaria was more prominent compared to that...

Communication Skills (CS) training of physicians in China and its role in actual challenges of patient-physician relationship: a cross-sectional survey

Junfeng Du, Gwendolyn Mayer, Elisabetta Posenato, Svenja Hummel, Ali Zafar, Till Bärnighausen & Jobst-Hendrik Schultz
Abstract Background The Chinese healthcare system is affected by frequent disputes between physicians and patients. Although recent reforms have contributed towards improving the patient-physician relationship, distrust in physicians is still high. Communication skills (CS) training of physicians holds the key to improving patient confidence and diffusing stressful situations. This survey reports on the status of CS training in medical education in China, and the experiences and attitudes of physicians towards CS training. Methods A cross-sectional...

Barriers and enablers to emergency obstetric and newborn care services use in Wolaita Zone, Southern Ethiopia: a qualitative case study

Mihiretu Alemayehu, Bereket Yakob & Nelisiwe Khuzwayo
Abstract Background Globally, 11.4 million untreated obstetric complications did not receive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) services yearly, with the highest burden in low and middle-income countries. Half of the Ethiopian women with obstetric complications did not receive EmONC services. However, essential aspects of the problem have not been assessed in depth. This study, therefore, explored the various aspects of barriers and enablers to women’s EmONC services utilization in southern Ethiopia. Methodology A qualitative...

Patient journey and resources mapping to implement a praziquantel mass drug administration program for children aged 5 years and below in resource-limited settings

Mhlengi Vella Ncube, Muhubiri Kabuyaya & Moses John Chimbari
Abstract Background The early childhood development of millions of children in some low- and medium-income countries may be compromised by schistosomiasis infections contracted at the age of 5 years and below. Currently, there are no standard guidelines for treating schistosomiasis in children that are 5 years and younger using praziquantel (PZQ), the only drug that the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends for treating schistosomiasis. The review is on processes and resources involved in the treatment...

Cost-effectiveness of single-inhaler triple therapy for patients with severe COPD: a systematic literature review

Rezwanul Hasan Rana, Khorshed Alam, Syed Afroz Keramat & Jeff Gow
Evidence from non-randomized studies shows benefits for single-inhaler users compared with multiple-inhaler users who receive the same medication. As a result, comparative cost-effectiveness studies are required to inform treatment decisions with an increasing choice of medications and devices for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study conducted a systematic literature review to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of using a single combination inhaler regimen for patients with severe COPD. This review also investigated the health impact on...

An analysis of past and future heatwaves based on a heat-associated mortality threshold: towards a heat health warning system

Thandi Kapwata, Michael T. Gebreslasie & Caradee Y. Wright
Abstract Heatwaves can have severe impacts on human health extending from illness to mortality. These health effects are related to not only the physical phenomenon of heat itself but other characteristics such as frequency, intensity, and duration of heatwaves. Therefore, understanding heatwave characteristics is a crucial step in the development of heat-health warning systems (HHWS) that could prevent or reduce negative heat-related health outcomes. However, there are no South African studies that have quantified heatwaves...

Prognostic markers in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia on targeted therapy, chemoimmunotherapy with anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prognostic factors

Zekhethelo A. Mkhwanazi, Tawanda M. Nyambuya, Snenhlanhla A. Mfusi & Bongani B. Nkambule
Abstract Combination chemoimmunotherapy (CIT) consisting of anti-CD20 has improved the progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). We performed a comprehensive synthesis of prognostic factors in patients with CLL on combined CIT with anti-CD20 antibodies compared with standard chemotherapy alone or targeted therapy. We searched the MEDLINE and academic search complete electronic databases as well as clinicaltrials.gov (from inception up to 01 August 2022) for randomised controlled trials...
