Trops petit - La prise en charge des nourrissons < 6 mois au CNT

Author: Pascale Delchevalerie - Michela Sonego, MSF-B
Resource type: Report

A really interesting report looking at increasing numbers of <6 months dying, admitted to centres etc - why this is, what to do about it etc. Looks at Burundi as a case study.

The report is in french but an English version translated by computer is provided.

Sample of the report:

For a few years, MSF moreover in has been confronted more with the problems of new-born and infants. The old dogma “an infant cannot badly-be nourished since it is nursed and thus we are interested only in the children > in 6 months” exhausted itself vis-a-vis the reality met on the ground and one started to seek how to deal with them...

....If one compares with Angola, for example, in Kuito, from September 2002 to April 2003 (7 months), the CNT admitted 6% infants < 6 months (44/729) and that of Camacupa in accomodated 8.5% (54/636) from June 2002 to February 2003 (9 months), with a peak with 23.7% in October and 31.2% in November 02, month when lenombre total of admissions was falling.

This category of recipients poses many problems, since their mortality is higher than in the other children. It was also noted that a great part of these infants was in fact of the small weights of birth (PPN) not having succeeded in recovering. What led us to dig a little more the subject, by a review of the literature on the PPN (January 2003). It was then necessary to pass to the practice: how to take these children in load?...

.....The objective of this work was to provide the foundations for the improvement of the assumption of responsibility of new-born and the infants < 6 months. While starting with the study of the specific problems of small < 6 months in a CNT of Burundi, our wish is that one widens successively this study with other contexts and other countries.
