Table 3 Reduction in under-five mortality when all interventions are scaled up together

From: Using LiST to model potential reduction in under-five mortality in Burkina Faso

  Baseline coverage Target Coverage Change in Coverage Percent Reduction in Under Five Mortality Due to Intervention
Antimalarials - artemisinin compounds for malaria 26% 70% 44% 10%
ORS - oral rehydration solution 23% 60% 37% 4%
Oral antibiotics : case management of pneumonia in children 33% 60% 27% 3%
Zinc – for treatment of diarrhea 4% 60% 56% 1%
Breastfeeding practices 33% 38% 5% 1%
ITN/IRS - Ownership of insecticide treated nets (ITN/LLIN) or household protected with indoor residual spraying 64% 70% 6% <1%
Labor and delivery managementa 71% 79% 8% <1%
IPTp - Pregnant women protected via intermittent preventive treatment of malaria during pregnancy or by sleeping under an ITN 38% 70% 32% <1%
Vitamin A supplementation 89% 90% 1% <1%
Immediate assessment and stimulationa 56% 58% 2% <1%
Clean birth practicesa 60% 64% 4% <1%
Syphilis detection and treatmenta 23% 64% 41% <1%
Total     22%
  1. Note: Coverage of skilled birth attendance and exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months are not listed above because targets for these interventions had been achieved at baseline.
  2. a Increase in coverage of labor and delivery management, immediate assessment and stimulation, clean birth practices, and syphilis detection and treatment results from scaling up coverage of mothers receiving at least four antenatal care visits from 45% in 2010 to 80% in 2012.
