Featured Issue: Rwanda Medical Journal Vol.70 No.1

This week we will be featuring issues from vol.70 of Rwanda Medical Journal on the blog. This is the second time we are featuring Rwanda Medical Journal on the blog. To find out more about the journal, click here.

Today we are featuring issue 1 of vol.70. This issue includes "Knowledge, attitudes and practices of exclusive breast-feeding of infants aged 0-6 months by urban refugee women in Kigali" by Bahemuka et al, which details a study to examine the practices, knowledge and attitudes of women in Kigali who are exclusively breastfeeding, so that this information may be made available to promote the practice. For the study, 90 refugee women with children six months to two years of age were examined between January and February 2011. The results indicated that 74% of the women had correct knowledge about exclusive breastfeeding. 34% of the women were found to have practiced exclusive breastfeeding for up to six months. Bahemuka et al. concluded that a study using qualitative research should be conducted to examine the reasons for low practice rates of exclusive breastfeeding.

The issue also includes "Antibiotic sensitivity pattersn of
Enterobacteriaceae isolated at King Faisal Hospital, Kigali - A Three Years Study" by Rangaiahagari et al. This study is conducted to evaluate patterns of antibiotic sensitivity. This study was conducted from January 2009 to December 2011 in the Microbiology unit in King Faisal hospital in Rwanda. The antibiotic sensitivity of microorganisms was processed and compiled through the hospital information system. The results indicated that Enterobacteriaceae had low susceptibility to antimicrobial agents. 2153 Enterobacteriaceae were isolated, with the most common isolate being Escherichia coli (click to see more articles on this species).
