D., DRONGORE.  2005.  Insecticide-treated nets in the prevention of malaria. Ongore D. East Afr Med J. 2005 Oct;82(10):493-4.. East Afr Med J. 2005 Oct;82(10):493-4. : Earthscan, London. 978-1-84407-469-3 (*) Abstract
BACKGROUND: Reports of osteopaenia/rickets of prematurity are on the increase due to improved survival rates of low birthweight infants. OBJECTIVE: To establish the incidence of rickets of prematurity by the age of six months in premature infants born at Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Newborn unit and paediatric outpatient follow up clinic of Kenyatta National Hospital. SUBJECTS: Successive surviving infants of birthweight less than 2000 g residents in Nairobi. RESULTS: Incidence of rickets of prematurity by six months of age was 58.8%. Rickets appeared more commonly in male infants compared to female infants. CONCLUSION: Rickets of prematurity is a common problem in the premature infants seen at Kenyatta National Hospital. Routine vitamin D supplements to premature infants in adequate doses of at least 400iu per day should be adopted in our centre.

A study of malaria on the Kano Plain, Kisumu District, Western Kenya, was carried out between April and August, 1985. The study included a knowledge, attitudes and practices (K.A.P.) survey on malaria illness and the mosquito vector. Overall knowledge about malaria illness was found to be good. However, treatment and prevention practices of malaria were found to be poor. Knowledge of the mosquito and its relationship to malaria was found to be high. Knowledge of methods of prevention of mosquito bites was also found to be high but actual use of the methods was low. Knowledge of traditional methods of prevention of mosquito bites was also found to be high. Actual use was again found to be low.

Ongore, D.  1985.  A Study Of Malaria On The Kano Plains, Kisumu District, Kenya: A Community Study Of Currrent Knowledge, Attitudes And Control Practises; Parasite And Spleen Rates; Mosquito Bionomics And The Feasability Of Vector-control At The Community Level. Abstract

A Study of Malaria on the Kano Plains, Kisumu District,
Kenya was carried out between April and August, 1985. The
study included the following:-
1. A Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) Survey
was conducted, it covered 187 households, representing 20%
of the total households in the study area. The responses
were analysed using the Statistical Packages for the Social
Sciences (SPSS) system on the ICL 2950 computer. In general
knowledge about malaria was found to be good, however knowledge
about the life cycle and habits of the mosquito was
found to be poor. Various plants with possible insecticidal
and/or repellent action were mentioned and are discussed.
2. During a clinical and parasitological survey 1216
people of all ages were examined for malaria parasites and

414 children aged 2-9 years were examined for splenomegaly
as well. Malaria was found to be highly endemic in the area
with an 84.1% parasite rate in children aged 2-9 years ..The

spleen rate in the same age group was found to be 50.2%. The

results and further analysis are given and fully discussed.
3. The Entomological Survey was base¢ upon six selected

collection stations. A total of 599 adult mosquitoes and

424 mosquito larvae were collected. All the import ant local
vectors of malaria were found in the area. In addition many
nuisance mosquitoes and potential arbovirus vectors were
found breeding. The species distribution is analysed and
discussed.

4. The validity of clinicaldiagnosis in malaria was
studied by comparing the clinical and blood film findings
in 1216 subjects. 43 people were found with symptoms
suggestive of clinical malaria. The practical usefulness
of clinical diagnosis is discussed on the basis of these
findings.
5. An Intervention Strategy is described based upon
the survey findings. The feasibility of·vector control at
community level is explored with emphasis on environmental
measures and the use of local resources.
