Table 4 Number of deaths averted by target year (2030) by intervention under ideal coverage scenario relative to BAU scenario

From: Effects of scaling up various community-level interventions on child mortality in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania: a modeling study

Interventions Burundi Kenya Rwanda Uganda Tanzania
Breastfeeding practices due to promotion 324 55 1346 1261
Vitamin A supplementation 368 992 135 361
Hand washing with soap 1579 1374 158 3374 2984
ITN/IRS - Households protected from malaria 1261 197
Complementary feeding 394 231 103 371 789
ORS - oral rehydration solution 2365 1968 1479 4988 8529
Zinc for treatment of diarrhea 157 913 433 901
Oral antibiotics for pneumonia 2824 2552 1567 6845 10,455
MAM - treatment for moderate acute malnutrition 1154 1908 362 3554 3634
Total (sensitivity bound)* 10,102 (8210–11,870) 10,262 (7831–12,619) 4354 (3678–4958) 20,613 (16049–25,162) 28,914 (23300–34,002)
  1. ITN/IRS insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS), BAU business as usual. *Sensitivity bounds were derived from sensitivity analyses that estimated effects of interventions based upon the highest level of effectiveness reported for all interventions (upper bound) relative to the lowest levels of effectiveness (lower bound). An em dash (─) indicates that the item is not applicable, or the value is zero, because the coverage under BAU scenario reached 99% by 2030, which is equivalent to the coverage under the ideal scale up scenario
