ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: 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. METHODS: We used data from the Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2014-2015. Association between children's characteristics and stunting was assessed using logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: A total of 3594 under 5 years were included; where 51% of them were boys. The prevalence of stunting was 38% (95% CI: 35.92-39.52) for all children. In adjusted analysis, the following factors were significant: boys (OR 1.51; 95% CI 1.25-1.82), children ages 6-23 months (OR 4.91; 95% CI 3.16-7.62) and children ages 24-59 months (OR 6.34; 95% CI 4.07-9.89) compared to ages 0-6 months, low birth weight (OR 2.12; 95% CI 1.39-3.23), low maternal height (OR 3.27; 95% CI 1.89-5.64), primary education for mothers (OR 1.71; 95% CI 1.25-2.34), illiterate mothers (OR 2.00; 95% CI 1.37-2.92), history of not taking deworming medicine during pregnancy (OR 1.29; 95%CI 1.09-1.53), poorest households (OR 1.45; 95% CI 1.12-1.86; and OR 1.82; 95%CI 1.45-2.29 respectively). CONCLUSION: Family-level factors are major drivers of children's growth stunting in Rwanda. Interventions to improve the nutrition of pregnant and lactating women so as to prevent low birth weight babies, reduce poverty, promote girls' education and intervene early in cases of malnutrition are needed.

    "description": "BACKGROUND: Child growth stunting remains a challenge in sub-Saharan Africa, where 34% of children under 5\u2009years 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.\nMETHODS: We used data from the Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2014-2015. Association between children's characteristics and stunting was assessed using logistic regression analysis.\nRESULTS: A total of 3594 under 5\u2009years were included; where 51% of them were boys. The prevalence of stunting was 38% (95% CI: 35.92-39.52) for all children. In adjusted analysis, the following factors were significant: boys (OR 1.51; 95% CI 1.25-1.82), children ages 6-23\u2009months (OR 4.91; 95% CI 3.16-7.62) and children ages 24-59\u2009months (OR 6.34; 95% CI 4.07-9.89) compared to ages 0-6\u2009months, low birth weight (OR 2.12; 95% CI 1.39-3.23), low maternal height (OR 3.27; 95% CI 1.89-5.64), primary education for mothers (OR 1.71; 95% CI 1.25-2.34), illiterate mothers (OR 2.00; 95% CI 1.37-2.92), history of not taking deworming medicine during pregnancy (OR 1.29; 95%CI 1.09-1.53), poorest households (OR 1.45; 95% CI 1.12-1.86; and OR 1.82; 95%CI 1.45-2.29 respectively).\nCONCLUSION: Family-level factors are major drivers of children's growth stunting in Rwanda. Interventions to improve the nutrition of pregnant and lactating women so as to prevent low birth weight babies, reduce poverty, promote girls' education and intervene early in cases of malnutrition are needed.",
