  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Private sector drug shops in integrated community case management of malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea in children in Uganda.
  • We conducted a survey involving 1,604 households to determine community care-seeking patterns and 163 exit interviews to determine appropriateness of treatment of common childhood illnesses at private sector drug shops in two rural districts of Uganda.
  • Of children sick within the last 2 weeks, 496 (53.1%) children first sought treatment in the private sector versus 154 (16.5%) children first sought treatment in a government health facility.
  • Only 15 (10.3%) febrile children treated at drug shops received appropriate treatment for malaria.
  • Five (15.6%) children with both cough and fast breathing received amoxicillin, although no children received treatment for 5-7 days.
  • Similarly, only 8 (14.3%) children with diarrhea received oral rehydration salts, but none received zinc tablets.
  • Management of common childhood illness at private sector drug shops in rural Uganda is largely inappropriate.
  • There is urgent need to improve the standard of care at drug shops for common childhood illness through public-private partnerships.
