Degree: 2012, Addis Ababa University

Background- Breastfeeding and good nutrition for children are essential for achieving the Millennium Development Goals, particularly the goals relating to child survival. Even though most mothers in Ethiopia breastfeed their babies, they do not always follow the recommendations of the "National Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding,". Mothers do not initiate breastfeeding within one hour after delivery, majority of them provide pre-lacteal feed and they do not exclusively breast feed to six months. Although the implementation of the national infant and young child feeding guideline has been in place since 2004, there is limited study which evaluated breastfeeding practices in the study area in this regard. Objective- The aim of this study was to assess determinants of breast feeding practice among mothers’ of children aged less than 24 months attending governmental maternal and child health clinics in Mekelle town. Methods- Institution based cross sectional study was carried out among five health facilities selected using simple random sampling technique. Data was collected by interviewer administered structured questionnaire and it was entered, cleaned and analyzed by using SPSS for windows version 16.0. Proportion was used to describe the results and it was presented in the form of figures, tables and texts. Binary logistic regression model was used to test association between dependent and independent variables. Result- A total of 361 mothers with their index child were interviewed. The ever breastfeeding rate in this study was 98.9%. The timely initiation rate of breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding were 77.9% and 60.8%, respectively. Eighty five percent of mothers reported on demand breastfeeding. The continued breast feeding rate at one year and at two years was 95.7% and 65.6% respectively. Home delivery (AOR=3.7[95%CI= 1.81, 9.33]), Vaginal delivery IX (AOR=14.4[95%CI=4.8, 43.7]) and non health professional as a birth attendant (AOR=3.5[95%CI=1.21, 8.53]) were found to be positively statistically associated with timely initiation of breastfeeding (P<0.05). Employment status (AOR=4.81(95%CI=2.27, 10.16]) and Child’s age (AOR=3.42[95%CI1.36, 8.59]) were associated with exclusive breastfeeding practice for the first 6 months. Conclusion and recommendation-: A range of characteristics affect the practice of timely initiation of breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding such as socio-demographic, obstetric and health service related practices/factors. Coordination, strengthening and sustaining of the existing strategies, and approaches for further improvement of optimal breastfeeding practice is recommended Advisors/Committee Members: Bazie Mekonnen(MSc) (advisor).

2. FANTANESH, DESALEGN. ASSESSMENTS OF KNOWLEDGE AND ATTITUDES OF PREGNANT WOMEN ON THE BENEFITS OF ANTENATAL CARE UTILIZATION, IN ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA .

Degree: 2015, Addis Ababa University

Background: Antenatal Care means care before birth and includes education, counseling, screening and treatment to monitor and to promote the well - being of the mother and fetus. Most previous studies done on knowledge and attitude of women toward ANC were community based done on general women of child bearing age. Until now little has been known about knowledge and attitude of women who are currently using ANC services. Objective: The aim of this study is to assess knowledge and attitudes of pregnant women regarding the benefits of Antenatal care in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Methods: Cross-sectional study was conducted among 405 pregnant women from March to April, 2015. Participants were interviewed using structured questionnaire. Twenty five nurses were trained and involved in data collection process. Data was entered using Epi-data and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 21. Descriptive statistics was used to describe the study variables. Logistic regression analysis was used to assess the relative effect of determinants. AP<0.05 was considered statistically significant in all tests of significance. Result: From total of 405 women interviewed 59.3 percent of them were found to have good knowledge and 55.3% had good attitude about ANC services. Related to determinant factors women who had partner support were found to have both good Knowledge and good attitude towards ANC [AOR 6.78(3.44, 13.3)][AOR 2.18(1.19, 3.97)]. Women with less than grade 8 were less likely to have good attitude than those who were grade 9 and above [AOR 0.51(0.27, 0.98)]. Compared to women who did not attend ANC during their most recent pregnancy, women who attended were 0.28 times less likely to have good attitude [AOR 0.28(0.10, 0.82)]. ii Conclusion: According to this study three out of five women were found to have good Knowledge of ANC and slightly greater than half of the study participant had good attitude of ANC utilization. Their knowledge on certain aspects of antenatal care were still poor. Partner support educational level and health facility visit for their most recent pregnancy were the determinant factors good attitude and good knowledge Recommendation: As a long term strategy to reaching all segments of the population, women empowerment through education and income generating activities as well as with involvement of husbands during information education and communication would have to be intensified on ANC programs.
