Temesgen Yadeta, Zewdu Kelkay Tessema, Fanuel Kebede, Girma Mengesha & Addisu Asefa
Abstract Background Land use-land cover change (LULCC) resulting from anthropogenic activities has been one of the major causes of loss of biodiversity globally. Thus, understanding the dynamics of such LULCC, especially within protected areas, is important to assess their past-present management effectiveness, identify the driving forces and assist future implementation of mitigation measures. The objectives of this study, based on satellite images analysis, were to examine and describe patterns of LULCC within and in the...

Non-prescribed antibiotic use for children at community levels in low- and middle-income countries: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Dumessa Edessa, Nega Assefa, Yadeta Dessie, Fekede Asefa, Girmaye Dinsa & Lemessa Oljira
Abstract Background Non-prescribed antibiotic use is an emerging risky practice around the globe. An inappropriate use involving nonprescription access is one cause of the rapid increase in antibiotic resistance. Children commonly encounter many self-limiting illnesses for which they frequently use antibiotics without prescription. However, no specific and conclusive evidence exists to inform actions against this unsafe practice. We thus aimed to estimate the pooled proportion of non-prescribed antibiotic use for children at community levels in...
