Local discrepancies in measles vaccination opportunities: results of population-based surveys in Sub-Saharan AfricaGrout, L; Conan, N; Juan Giner, A; Hurtado, N; Fermon, F; N'goran, A; Grellety, E; Minetti, A; Porten, K; Grais, RF (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014)The World Health Organization recommends African children receive two doses of measles containing vaccine (MCV) through routine programs or supplemental immunization activities (SIA). Moreover, children have an additional opportunity to receive MCV through outbreak response immunization (ORI) mass campaigns in certain contexts. Here, we present the results of MCV coverage by dose estimated through surveys conducted after outbreak response in diverse settings in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Observational bias during nutrition surveillance: results of a mixed longitudinal and cross-sectional data collection system in Northern Nigeria.Grellety, E; Luquero, F J; Mambula, C; Adamu, H H; Elder, G; Porten, K; Epicentre, Paris, France. Emmanuel.GRELLETY@epicentre.msf.org (PLoS, 2013-10)The Sahel is subject to seasonal hungry periods with increasing rates of malnutrition. In Northern Nigeria, there is no surveillance system and surveys are rare. The objectives were to analyse possible observational bias in a sentinel surveillance system using repeated mixed longitudinal/cross-sectional data and estimate the extent of seasonal variation.
