||Occupational health epidemiology in Africa: Drought on fertile grounds
||July/Sep. 1995, Vol.1, No.3, p.260-268. 47 ref.
||A literature survey regarding current occupational health epidemiology in Africa revealed a dearth of published work despite the large numbers of problems and hazards faced. The socioeconomic context of occupational health in Africa is outlined, and issues in the design of occupational health studies are examined, including the nature and accessibility of the populations studied, measurement of morbidity and exposure, design of analytic and intervention studies, and the human and material resources for carrying out such research. Suggestions are made for development of occupational health research and practice in Africa.
