A. “The Effect of Birth Intervals on Causes of Under-Five Mortality in Afghanistan,” by Mohammad Hafez Rasooly, Khwaja Mir Islam Saeed, Bashir Noormal, Iqbal Aman, Fred Arnold, Pav Govindasamy, Shea Rutstein, and Rebecca Winter(WP96, July 2013, .pdf format, 19p.).

Abstract:

Introduction: Every year millions of children die before reaching their fifth birthday. While the effect of the length of birth interval on child health and survival is well established, there has been little exploration of the links between birth intervals and causes of under-five mortality at either global or regional levels. The purpose of this study is to explore the association between birth intervals and specific causes of death for children under age 5 years in Afghanistan.

Method: This study is a retrospective analysis of data from the 2010 Afghanistan Mortality Survey (AMS 2010). The analysis is limited to deaths of children under age 5 years that occurred in the three years before the survey. The dependent variable is the cause-specific mortality rate (CSMR) among children under age 5. The key independent variable is the length of the preceding birth interval, measured as the number of months between the birth of the child under study and the immediately preceding birth to the mother, if any. The analysis used both bivariate and multivariate designs.

Results: After adjusting for socio-demographic characteristics, children with a previous birth interval of less than 18 months have a higher risk of dying from certain causes of death, including sepsis and diarrhea, than children with a previous birth interval of 24-35 months (the reference category). Children with a previous birth interval of at least 60 months also have a higher risk of dying from certain causes, including diarrhea and low birth weight, than children with a previous birth interval of 24-35 months.

Conclusion: The AMS 2010 provides a rich dataset that can be analyzed and used to generate new information for planners, program managers, and policymakers. This study, which combines data from the survey on causes of death with other covariates of the risk of death of children under age 5, has shown mechanisms by which the length of birth intervals may be related to the risks of dying in childhood. In particular, the length of birth intervals is significantly related to mortality risk from diarrhea, sepsis, and low birth weight. Further analyses in other settings are needed to confirm the generalizability of these conclusions and to establish whether children with non-optimal birth intervals

B. “Maternal Health Care Trends in Afghanistan,” by Mohammad Iqbal Aman, Bashir Noormal, Khwaja Mir Islam Saeed, and Mohammad Hafez Rasooly (WP97, July 2013, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

Introduction: Afghanistan has long been recognized as having one of the highest levels of maternal mortality in the world. In Afghanistan an estimated 40% to 50% of women’s deaths during the childbearing years are related to complications during pregnancy and childbirth. The present study uses nationally representative data to describe and interpret trends in coverage of three key maternal health care services across provinces in Afghanistan, in order to contribute to evidence-based maternal health care planning and effective strategies to improve maternal health care in the provinces of the country.

Method: This paper presents secondary analysis of data from the 2010 Afghanistan Mortality Survey (AMS). In order to assess maternal health care service utilization, this study examined women’s use of three essential maternal services: antenatal care (ANC), delivery care by a skilled birth attendant (SBA), and postnatal care (PNC). Two methods were used to compare coverage across provinces: first, provinces were compared in their overall coverage of maternal health services during the five years preceding the survey; and second, maternal health care utilization was disaggregated into one-year periods in order to examine trends in health care utilization by province during this five-year period.

Results: Nationally, 60% of women reported that they received antenatal care from a skilled provider for their last live birth, 34% reported that their last live birth was delivered by a skilled provider, and 23% reported that they received postnatal care within two days following delivery of their last live birth. Eighteen percent of women received all three maternal services for their last live birth. Nationally, use of all three services increased by roughly 10% over the five years preceding the survey, but the extent of progress varied considerably across province.

Conclusion: The study shows overall progress toward improving coverage of all three maternal health indicators (ANC, deliveries attended by SBAs, and PNC). This progress could be explained by substantial investments put in place during this period in reproductive health care and in rebuilding the health system. However, there is extensive variation in the extent of progress across provinces. Provinces with better maternal health care coverage and a higher rate of progress in coverage can be encouraged to share lessons learned from their experience with provinces with lower coverage and slower progress.

Center for Demographic and Family Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Psychosocial, Peer, and Parental Influences on Early and Unintended Fertility among Young Adults,” by Karen Benjamin Guzzo, Sue P. Nash, Wendy D. Manning, Monica A. Longmore, and Peggy C. Giordano (WP 2013-11, 2013, .pdf format, 36p.).

Abstract:

The high levels of early and unintended fertility in the United States are a public health and social concern, yet declines in fertility in the young adult years, particularly unintended fertility, have stagnated. Prior research has suggested the need to examine the role of psychosocial factors and expand the definition of unintended childbearing to include more nuanced categories. We use a unique longitudinal dataset – the Toledo Adolescent Relationship Study (TARS) – to examine the role of psychological attributes and attitudes, and peer, family, and neighborhood context in adolescence on early and unintended fertility among young men and women 17-24. In addition to the rich data available on potential predictive factors, TARS contains a more nuanced characterization of unintended fertility to reflect ambivalence and risk-taking. Our findings suggest that peer, neighborhood, and parental factors during adolescence are associated with entering early parenthood, while individual-level psychological factors influence intendedness, with variation across the categories of intendedness.
