BACKGROUND: Monitoring universal health coverage in reproductive, maternal and child health requires appropriate indicators for assessing coverage and equity. In 2008, the composite coverage index (CCI)-a weighted average of eight indicators reflecting family planning, antenatal and delivery care, immunizations and management of childhood illnesses-was proposed. In 2017, the CCI formula was revised to update the family planning and diarrhea management indicators. We explored the implications of ...

In this study, the association between serum uric acid (SUA) level and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was investigated in healthy individuals belonging to two Brazilian birth cohorts. Methods Data from 3,541 and 3,482 individuals, aged 30 an...

Summary Background The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for stratification of social indicators by ethnic groups; however, no recent multicountry analyses on ethnicity and child survival have been done in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). Methods We used data from Demographic and Health Surveys and Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys collected between 2010 and 2016, from LMICs that provided birth histories and information on ethnicity or a proxy variable. We calculated n...

Abstract Objective To describe the sleep time window (STW), total sleep time (TST), and sleep percent [SP = (TST/STW) × 100] by accelerometry in a population-based young adult cohort in Brazil. Methods Cross-sectional analysis with a 22-year sample (N = 2462). Sleep variables were measured using an accelerometer. The devices were worn on the non-dominant wrist for approximately seven days. A raw data analysis using the GGIR package was performed. The following sleep variables were extracted: TST...

Abstract Background : We utilised data from the 2015 Pelotas Birth Cohort, a large prospective cohort in southern Brazil to examine the association of moderate and severe antenatal depression with child birth outcomes and explore interactions with sociodemographic characteristics. Methods : Data was available for n=3046 participants and their infants. We measured antenatal depression using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS, ≥13 for moderate and ≥17 for severe depression). Outcome me...

Yet, such data are often a critical basis for health planning and monitoring in countries, in support of efforts to reach all with essential interventions. Household surveys provide a rich basis for interventions coverage indicators on reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) at the country first administrative level (regio...
