Phase:
Study type: Observational

The goal of this observational study is to assess the causes of anemia in women of reproductive age. The main questions it aims to answer are: - What are the causes of anemia among women of reproductive age? - What is the contribution of iron deficiency to overall anemia? - What is the prevalence of hemoglobinopathies among women of reproductive age with anemia? Participants will be asked to respond to the interview questions, and provide blood, urine, and stool samples.

NCT ID: NCT05652400 Recruiting - HIV-1-infection Clinical Trials

HIV Transmission in the Era of Scaling up Antiretroviral Therapy in Ethiopia

THESA
Start date: July 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The goal of this observational study is to understand patterns of HIV transmission in a high-prevalence area in Ethiopia, and to compare viral genetic information in people with HIV who are newly diagnosed and have not been exposed to antiretroviral therapy with persons receiving antiretroviral therapy without viral suppression. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Do people with HIV who fail to achieve viral suppression contribute to the ongoing spread of HIV in Ethiopia, or does HIV transmission mainly occur between persons with no exposure to such therapy? - Are viruses with drug-resistance mutations transmitted onwards from people with HIV receiving antiretroviral therapy who fail to achieve viral suppression? * Which factors are involved in treatment failure and emergence of drug-resistant viruses longitudinally? Participants will be enrolled with regard to history of antiretroviral therapy exposure (newly diagnosed/treatment-naïve vs. treatment-experienced with lack of viral suppression), using persons on antiretroviral therapy with viral suppression for control. We will compare the following outcomes between these groups: - Clustering of viral genetic sequences at inclusion (implying linked transmission) - Prevalence of drug-resistance-associated mutations at inclusion - Viral suppression and emergence of drug-resistance mutations during follow-up

NCT ID: NCT05626647 Completed - Anemia Clinical Trials

Etiology of Anemia Among Preschool Children in Ethiopia

Start date: November 1, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

This study aims to determine the etiology of anemia among preschool children in selected regions of Ethiopia. The study is a longitudinal observational study to assess the determinant factors of anemia in two different seasons. The main questions it aims to answer are: 1. What is the prevalence and etiology of anemia in the two different (Post and Pre-harvest) seasons? 2. What is the strength of the interaction between anemia and each of the determinant factors being considered? The participant's dietary intake and anthropometric measurement have been assessed, and biological samples (Blood and Stool) were collected to determine the prevalence of anemia and the factors contributing to it.

ICU
Start date: April 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The study was a retrospective observational cohort where patient medical record review was done and data were gathered on 419 cases. The ICU admission pattern and patient outcome were the primary outcomes presented in the manuscript.

The Effect of Double Duty Interventions on Double Burden of Malnutrition Among School Adolescents in Ethiopia

DBM
Start date: October 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this cluster randomized controlled trial is to determine the effect of double duty interventions on double burden of malnutrition, dietary diversity score, and frequency of morbidity among secondary school adolescents in Debre Berhan City, Ethiopia. The main aim is to answer the following questions. 1. What is the effect of double duty interventions on double burden of malnutrition among secondary school adolescents? 2. What is the effect of double duty interventions on dietary diversity score among secondary school adolescents? 3. What is the effect of double duty interventions on among secondary school adolescents?

NCT ID: NCT05565196 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Maternal Care Patterns

Birth Companion Intervention in Ethiopia and Kenya

Start date: October 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study aims to assess the acceptability; feasibility; implementation cost; and penetration of the birth companion intervention introduced at health facilities. It is a multi-country study (Ethiopia and Kenya) with a two parallel arm cluster randomized controlled trial design. The study duration will approximately be 16 months.

NCT ID: NCT05563974 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Postnatal Complication

Family Led Postnatal Care in Ethiopia

FPNC
Start date: November 14, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Family-led Postnatal Care-FPNC A midwife involves families and uses a visual checklist to assess and counsel. The midwife then gives families the checklist along with information on how to retrieve a "homecare kit" that has a blood pressure machine, infrared thermometer, and health education booklet. At home, families assess the health of postnatal mothers and newborns for 6 days, and then return the completed checklist and homecare kit to the community location. A community health worker collects the checklists monthly. This study aims to assess the acceptability and feasibility of the FPNC and assess if FPNC increases the proportion of women/newborns who have a postnatal check in the first week after delivery and the proportion who seek care from a health provider when a postnatal danger sign is identified. The study will take approximately 12 months.

NCT ID: NCT05549388 Completed - Clinical trials for Cardiovascular Diseases

Effect of Front-of-Pack Labels in Ethiopia

Start date: December 28, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Ethiopia is experiencing the type of rapid food system transformation that leads to a double burden of malnutrition and increased non-communicable diseases. Front-of-pack labels on packaged foods are an emerging public health strategy with the potential to address non-communicable diseases by discouraging the purchase and consumption of products with high levels of nutrients of public health concern. The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of front-of-pack labeling systems to reduce the intent to purchase unhealthy foods among adults in Ethiopia. The study will recruit approximately 1200 adults using a street-intercept methodology. Participants will be randomized to 1 of 4 arms to complete a survey in which the presence and type of front-of-pack label differs across survey arms and asked to rate participants' intent to purchase unhealthy packaged foods.
