oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Heights and weights of rural African primary school children in Rhodesia (Mashonaland)

  • ISSN : 0008-9176



This investigation is a pilot study. The .possibilities of the approach have been descriptionbed and some useful information has been gathered. Roman Catholic missions are responsible for approximately one-third of African .education in Rhodesia. They should prove a good source of material, as at least some birth dates of the children attending these mission schools can be traced. This is not an, ideal approach, but it is a valid method of obtaining otherwise unobtainable data. The high incidences of goitre, hepatomegaly and splenomegaly need further study.
