      For example, the level of unmet need is higher in Western Province 32 percent and Coast Province 30 province than elsewhere in Kenya. Women, on the other hand, rely more than men on community level sources such as friends, relatives, and health facility staff. Further, unlike earlier surveys, the KDHS provides a national estimate of the level of maternal mortality i. Most Bantu are farmers.

      The practice declines with higher levels of education. Family Planning. Metrodin HP, was developed based on the new knowledge on the role of specific male and female hormones in reproductive health. A rural woman can expect to have 5. Knowledge and use of family planning in Kenya has continued to rise over the last several years.

      Seventeen percent of children under age three were reported to have had diarrhoea in the two weeks preceding the survey. Fifty-three percent of women and 46 percent of men in Kenya do not want to have any more children. In the former, the ovaries are stimulated using hormonal drugs like Metrodin HP to produce a higher number of, and better quality eggs. These children are defined as chronically undernourished. But on the negative side, the census may also reveal that the number of jobless Kenyans has grown by about five per cent in the past three years.

Those that remain are principally concentrated in the business sector, and Asians continue to form one of the more prosperous communities in the region. For example, about 1 in 10 men and women do not think that AIDS can be prevented. A more specific objective was to provide baseline data for the South West region and the area in Central region known as the Luwero Triangle, where the Uganda government and UNICEF are currently supporting a primary health care project.

This represents a significant shift in sourcing away from public outlets, a decline from 68 percent estimated in the KDHS. A major factor contributing to high fertility is age at first marriage; 54 percent of women marry before they reach 18 years of age and only 2 percent remain unmarried throughout their entire life.

The age at which women and men first marry has risen slowly over the past 20 years. This percentage is higher if children without health cards who have been immunised are included. Since the Independence of KenyaBritons and other Europeans in Kenya also continue to dominate the local business community.

However, knowledge of ways to avoid AIDS is related to respondents' education. Because the product is highly purified, it is also more predictable and therefore easier to administer, says Dr F. With another group of Kenyans -- those aged above 65 -- unlikely to be in no productive employment, the country is sagging under a high number of dependants who will put heavy pressure on the working class and government efforts to feed the hungry.

More detailed analysis suggests that the worsening picture is due to: a a decline in measles vaccine coverage, and b an increase in the dropout rate between first and third doses of DPT and polio vaccines.

While nearly all survey respondents reported a general knowledge of AIDS, there remain significant numbers of women and men in Kenya who still lack an appreciation for key aspects of the epidemic.

The practice declines with higher levels of education. Results from the KDHS data make clear that childhood mortality conditions have worsened in the early-mid s; this after a period of steadily improving child survival prospects through the mid-to-late s.

Latest data before the census shows that primary school enrolment rose from 5. The primary objective of the UDHS was to provide data on fertility, Kenya demographic and health survey planning, childhood mortality and basic indicators of maternal and child health.

Our findings suggest that, if Kenya is to achieve her strategic health objectives and millennium development target of reducing the prevalence of malnutrition, strategies for poverty alleviation, promotion of post secondary education for women and provision of basic preventive health care are critical concerns that need to be addressed.

It has also placed considerable emphasis on preventive, promotive and rehabilitative health services without ignoring curative services. A significant finding is that fertility is linked to education: women with higher education have an average of 5 births, compared with 7 births for women with primary education.

The UDHS results show that 47 percent of children age months are fully vaccinated, and only 14 percent have not received any vaccinations. The purpose of the survey was to provide planners and policymakers with baseline information regarding fertility, family planning, and maternal and child health.

It will reveal, for instance, that free primary education has greatly boosted school enrolment with attendant impact on health, fertility, economic status and other social characteristics. The male sperms are then collected and used to fertilise the eggs outside the body.This report summarises the findings of the Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) carried out by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) in partnership with the National AIDS.

Objective: To estimate the potential impact of an HIV/AIDS Vaccine in Kenya. Design: The Kenyan HIV/AIDS epidemic was modeled using the most current data from national sources including epidemiology and behavioral surveillance.
