This association results in a bias in reported child deaths in data collected retrospectively from mothers because only living mothers are able to report. (...) They found significantly different under-five mortality levels for HIV-positive mothers (46 percent) versus HIV-negative mothers (16 percent). (...) The second assumption is violated also in HIV settings because in most countries HIV prevalence is associated with mother’s age, thus child mortality is not independent of mother’s age.

Aziza or Mama Aziza as she is commonly referred to by the mothers is one of the beneficiaries of the UNICEF trainings on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) and is currently a ‘Mother Lead’ responsible for educating pregnant women, lactating mothers, and women of childbearing age on good feeding practices for their children in her community. At the facility, Aziza has formed two mother-support groups that meet biweekly with about ten mothers in each sitting. (...) What keeps her motivated for the three years that she has led this activity is an old but relevant slogan that she shares with the mothers - Prevention is better than cure!  Over the years as she continues reaching mothers and their babies, Aziza has observed change amongst the mothers thanks to the mother-support-group sessions – “for instance mothers are embracing exclusive breastfeeding and no longer feed their babies with water during the first six months, a practice that was common, mothers are taking care of themselves and eating well during pregnancy, attending antenatal clinics and childcare and feeding has improved too.”
