Co-morbidity of malnutrition with falciparum malaria parasitaemia among children under the aged 6-59 months in Somalia: a geostatistical analysis

Abstract:

Background: Malnutrition and malaria are both significant causes of morbidity and mortality in African children. However, the extent of their spatial comorbidity remains unexplored and an understanding of their spatial correlation structure would inform improvement of integrated interventions. We aimed to determine the spatial correlation between both wasting and low mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) and falciparum malaria among Somalian children aged 6-59 months.
