In this multi-country cluster-randomized behavioural intervention trial promoting exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) in Africa, we compared growth of infants up to 6 months of age living in communities where peer counsellors promoted EBF with growth in those infants living in control communities.

Nodding syndrome in Ugandan children--clinical features, brain imaging and complications: a case series.
BMJ Open

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Nodding syndrome is a devastating neurological disorder of uncertain aetiology affecting children in Africa. There is no diagnostic test, and risk factors and symptoms that would allow early diagnosis are poorly documented. This study aimed to describe the clinical, electrophysiological and brain imaging (MRI) features and complications of nodding syndrome in Ugandan children.

Hide Abstract
Exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) for 6 months is the recommended form of infant feeding. Support of mothers through individual peer counselling has been proved to be effective in increasing exclusive breastfeeding prevalence. We present a costing study of an individual peer support intervention in Uganda, whose objective was to raise exclusive breastfeeding rates at 3 months of age.

Malaria parasitaemia among infants and its association with breastfeeding peer counselling and vitamin A supplementation: a secondary analysis of a cluster randomized trial.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-31-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Malaria is the second highest contributor to the disease burden in Africa and there is a need to identify low cost prevention strategies. The objectives of this study were to estimate the prevalence of malaria parasitaemia among infants and to measure the association between peer counselling for exclusive breastfeeding (EBF), vitamin A supplementation, anthropometric status (weight and length) and malaria parasitaemia.

Hide Abstract
Different strategies have been used to improve the initiation and duration of breastfeeding. Peer counsellors are reported to improve exclusive breastfeeding levels, but few studies have assessed the satisfaction of women with the support given, especially in Africa. In this paper we describe womens experiences of peer counselling for exclusive breastfeeding in an East African setting.

Gendered perceptions on infant feeding in Eastern Uganda: continued need for exclusive breastfeeding support.

Hide Abstract
In resource-poor settings, HIV positive mothers are recommended to choose between Exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) or Exclusive replacement feeding (ERF). Acceptability, Feasibility, Affordability, Sustainability and Safety (AFASS) has been the World Health Organization (WHO)s a priori criteria for ERF the last ten years. AFASS has become a mere acronym among many workers in the field of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, PMTCT. Thereby, non-breastfeeding has been suggested irrespective of social norms. EBF for the first half of infancy is associated with huge health benefits for children in areas where infant mortality is high. But, even if EBF has been recommended for a decade, few mothers are practicing it. We set out to understand fathers and mothers infant feeding perceptions and the degree to which EBF and ERF were AFASS.

Health workers counselling practices are essential to improve infant feeding practices. This paper will assess how infant feeding counselling was done and experienced by counsellors and mothers in Eastern Uganda in the context of previous guidelines. This has implications for implementation of the new infant feeding guidelines from 2009.

Establishing individual peer counselling for exclusive breastfeeding in Uganda: implications for scaling-up.
Matern Child Nutr
PUBLISHED: 01-09-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Exclusive breastfeeding remains critical for child survival, potentially reducing childhood morbidity and mortality. In Uganda, 98% of children are ever breastfed, but exclusive breastfeeding levels remain low. Supporting mothers in breastfeeding exclusively can improve breastfeeding practices. This paper describes experiences of establishing individual peer counselling for exclusive breastfeeding in the Uganda site of the Promoting Infant Health and Nutrition in Sub-Saharan Africa: Safety and Efficacy of Exclusive Breastfeeding Promotion in the Era of HIV trial, and highlights some implications for scaling-up. Twelve women were identified by their communities, one from each of 12 clusters. They were trained for 6 days and followed up for 1 year while they counselled mothers. Their knowledge and attitudes towards exclusive breastfeeding were assessed before and immediately after training, and also 10 months into peer counselling. Observations, field notes and records of interactions with peer counsellors were used to record experiences from this intervention. The communities were receptive to peer counselling and women participated willingly. After training and 10 months follow-up, their knowledge and attitude to exclusive breastfeeding improved. All were retained in the study, and mothers accepted them in their homes. They checked for mothers several times if they missed them on the first attempt. Husbands and grandmothers played key roles in infant feeding decisions. Involving the communities in selection helped to identify reliable breastfeeding peer counsellors who were acceptable to mothers and were retained in the study. Other key issues to consider for scaling-up such interventions include training and follow up of peer counsellors, which led to improved knowledge and attitudes towards exclusive breastfeeding (ClinicalTrials.gov no: NCT00397150).

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
