High mortality in Carnot city Central African RepublicJanuary-July 2012ESCAIDE, 6 November 2013

Nelly Fournet, EPIET cohort 2011


Economical and geographical background
Economical and geographical background

  • CAR: 4 millions inhabitants

  • 80% of population < 2 $ / day

  • 45% of adults are illiterate

  • Political instability / Isolated

  • Life of expectancy: 48 years


Carnot city
Carnot city

  • 61 790 inhabitants

  • Agriculture replaced progressively by diamond mining

  • 2009 : diamond mining restricted → crisis

    → MSF opened a programme for acute malnutrition in children

    • 2010 : MSF opened an HIV programme


Health situation in carnot city
Health situation in Carnot city

  • January-July 2011 : retrospective mortality survey

  • Crude Death Rate 3x higher than emergency threshold*:

    • CDR = 3.7/10,000/day (CI95% 3.0 – 4.6)

    • 0-5 DR = 7.0/10,000/day (CI95% 5.3 – 9.,3)

      → MSF actions:

      → Primary health care

      → Paediatric ward

      → Measles mass vaccination campaign

      → Mortality surveillance system

*CDR = 1 death / 10,000 inhabitants / day

0-5 DR = 2 deaths / 10,000 children <5 y / day


Objectives
Objectives

Main objective:

  • Estimate the crude death rate (CDR) and the specific death rate among children <5y (0-5 DR) in Carnot city between January and July 2012

    Secondary objective:

  • Estimate the main causes of deaths

    → In order to re-adjust MSF interventions


Study design
Study design

  • Cross-sectional retrospective survey

  • Recall period: January 2012 – July 2012

  • Information collected:

    • Number of persons in the household at the date of the survey

    • Number of deaths / births / who joined / left the household + dates

    • Cause of death (simplified verbal autopsy)

    • Study population:

      • Population: all persons living more than 1 month in Carnot

      • Household: all persons sharing the same meal and under the responsibility of the same person


Methods
Methods

  • Two-stage cluster sampling

    • Stage one: selection of the neighbourhoods (clusters) proportional to population size

    • Stage two: within each cluster, selection of the households with the EPI method

  • Sample size:

    • Sample size: 3,717 persons = 710 households

    • 30 clusters selected: 24 households per cluster

  • Survival analysis:

    • CDR and 0-5 DR estimations and CI95%

    • Trends over the time



Death rates
Death Rates

2011:

  • CDR = 3.7/10,000/day (CI95% 3.0 – 4.6)

  • Emergency threshold: CDR = 1/10,000/day

  • 0-5 DR = 7.0/10,000/day (CI95% 5.3 – 9.,3)

  • Emergency threshold: 0-5 DR = 2/10,000/day


Trends over the recall period
Trends over the recall period

Specific death rate among children <5 years from January to July 2012, Carnot city, CAR


Main causes of deaths
Main causes of deaths

  • Children <5 years

    • 35% malaria

    • 10% neonatal deaths (without associated causes)

    • 7% diarrhoea

  • Adults >15 years

    • 30% HIV

    • 13% malaria

    • 10% accident (poisoning, trauma, bite…)


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Limitations:

    • Recall bias

    • Cause of deaths reported by verbal autopsy

    • Results specific to Carnot City, not generalize to CAR

  • Crude death rate and the specific death rate among children <5y decreased half compared to 2011

  • Above emergency threshold

  • Main cause of death: HIV among adults and malaria among children


Recommendations
Recommendations

-> Strengthen collaboration with health local authorities

-> Improve access and coverage of health care centres

-> Improve paediatric and neonatal health care

-> Improve malaria and HIV diagnosis, treatment and prevention

  • March 2013 : rebellion in Bangui (capital)

    → Overthrow of the government

    → Priority: care of injured persons
