Abstract

A single round survey was conducted in Hewu, Ciskei, during May 1986, to determine a profile of child survival for the region. A stratified proportional cluster sample was used according to village type. Environmental, maternal, birth and mortality data were collected by 26 pairs of village health workers who interviewed 5102 households. More than 50% of infant deaths were diarrhoea-related, most of which occurred during the summer months. An increased risk of dying under 1 yr of age was associated with multiple births, home births and births in resettlement vilages. -from Authors
