Abstract:

Background: Anemia, which is the most common micronutrient impairment, is the most common cause of affliction of the population and the most common cause of morbidity, and 47.4% of which are under fabrication. The morbidity rate of anemia is in the range of 44 to 56% of Ethiopia. The size is shown in the region with respect to the region. In particular, in developing countries including Ethiopia, it is still an important public health problem. Despite this evidence, the size of the anemia and the associated factors are not schematically studied, and the survey room has limited information or limited evidence. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the factors associated with the size of anemia 6-59 months at Mertulemariam Hospital in Northwest Ethiopia.
Methods: Mertulemariam Hospital Hospital Northwest Ethiopia held a hospital until December 30, September 30th to September 30. Nursing provider. Blood samples and stool tests for intestinal parasites were carried out. Hemoglobin levels were analyzed by a blood cell (HemocueHB 301). The collected data was encoded, deleted, and entered into EPIDATA version 3.1 and analyzed by STATA VERSION 14 software. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression was used to identify candidates and predictors. The significance level was determined with a 95% confidence interval in p-value. 0.05.
Results: Of the 341 planned participants, approximately 310 mother-child pairs participated in the survey. This corresponds to a response rate of 91%. Data was collected from children and their parents or legal guardians. In this study, the degree of anemia was 11.9% (95% CI, 8.5, 16.2%). Low dietary diversity (AOR = 2.3; 95% CI: 1.12, 5.14), unstable dietary households (AOR = 3.24; 95% CI: 1.85, 4.52), initiation of complementary feeding (AOR =) 3.20; 95% CI: 1.23, 6.61), intestinal parasite infection (AOR = 3.20; 95% CI: 1.23, 6.61), and family income (AOR = 2.8795% CI: 1.57, 5.0) are significant for anemia. It turned out to be a factor related to.
Conclusion: Overall, anemia is considered to be a child's hygiene problem for 6 to 59 months old. It participates in the Mertulemariam Hospital based on the Cut-off Point of World Health Organization. Nutritional poor diversity, supplementary feeding time, budget, intestinal parasitic infection and family income were clearly related to childhood anemia. Therefore, after the intervention in public health has been proved, z. Food diversification, cleaning prevention pharmaceutical supply and household safety. In addition, women with diversification of nutrition and nutrition can not only be criticized by the replacement source of the active source of the survey room, but also can be trained.
