The prevalence of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in Nigeria

  [ 288 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By MG Njoku, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • April 20, 2007


Journal: Journal of Health Psychology, Vol. 12, No. 3, 461-474 (2007)

Authors and affiliations: Njoku MG, Jason LA, Torres-Harding SR. DePaul University (Njoku, Jason), and Roosevelt University (Torres-Harding), Chicago, Illinois.

PMID: 17439996

The present study found adult rates of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in Nigeria that were somewhat higher than rates from community-based CFS epidemiologic studies in the USA. The rates of chronic fatigue for both adults and children were also higher than in existing community-based studies.

It is possible that the presence of several fatiguing illnesses such as malaria and typhoid, the lack of adequate healthcare resources and poverty in Nigeria, place individuals at greater risk for fatigue and its syndromes.

There is a need for more epidemiologic studies on the prevalence and sociodemographic characteristics of CFS in developing countries.

Keywords: Africa, community-based research, epidemiology, international study
