Abstract Background Cesarean sections (c-sections), the most common surgical procedures performed worldwide, are essential in reducing maternal and neonatal deaths. There is a paucity of research studies on c-section care and outcomes in rural African settings. The objective of this study was to describe demographic characteristics, clinical management, and maternal and neonatal outcomes among women receiving c-sections at Kirehe District Hospital (KDH) in rural Rwanda. Methods This retrospectiv...

Coverage is an important indicator to assess both the performance and effectiveness of public health programs. Recommended methods for coverage estimation for the treatment of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) can involve active and adaptive case finding (AACF), an informant-driven sampling procedure, for the identification of cases. However, as this procedure can yield a non-representative sample, exhaustive or near exhaustive case identification is needed for valid coverage estimation with AACF....

Child growth stunting remains a challenge in sub-Saharan Africa, where 34% of children under 5 years are stunted, and causing detrimental impact at individual and societal levels. Identifying risk factors to stunting is key to developing proper interventions. This study aimed at identifying risk factors of stunting in Rwanda. We used data from the Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2014–2015. Association between children’s characteristics and stunting was assessed using logistic regressi...

Background Collaborations are often a cornerstone of global health research. Power dynamics can shape if and how local researchers are included in manuscripts. This article investigates how international collaborations affect the representation of local authors, overall and in first and last author positions, in African health research. Methods We extracted papers on ‘health’ in sub-Saharan Africa indexed in PubMed and published between 2014 and 2016. The author’s affiliation was used to classif...

Objective To determine the health facility cost of cesarean section at a rural district hospital in Rwanda. Methods Using time-driven activity-based costing, this study calculated capacity cost rates (cost per minute) for personnel, infrastructure and hospital indirect costs, and estimated the costs of medical consumables and medicines based on purchase prices, all for the pre-, intra- and post-operative periods. We estimated copay (10% of total cost) for women with community-based health insura...

Abstract Background Despite the urgency of mental health surveillance and treatment in humanitarian emergencies, there has been little evaluation of instruments that keep response burden to a minimum. We aimed to evaluate a sequential screening process for the detection of major depressive disorder that improves the efficiency of screening-confirmation procedures using the two-item and eight-item Patient Health Questionnaires (PHQ-2 and PHQ-8, respectively) in a refugee population. Methods We an...
