This study, aimed to determine women knowledge on key neonatal dander sign and associated factors among women recently gave birth in eastern Ethiopia.
Of the 757 women interviewed, fever was reported as a neonatal danger sign by 255 (33.7%) followed by poor sucking (24.8%), difficulty breathing (23.5%), convulsion (16.0%), lethargy (12.9%), a very small baby (11.8%) and hypothermia (2.9%). Overall 9.38% listed four or more danger signs spontaneously. Attending at least one antenatal care visit [AOR = 2.83; 95% CI (1.62, 4.93)], and giving birth at health facilities [AOR = 3.31; 95% CI (1.67, 6.53)] were significantly associated with knowledge of neonatal danger signs.
