Bibliography on HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia and Ethiopians in the Diaspora: The 2008 Update
PJ Converse, H Kloos, MS Mulatu, DH Mariam, A Haddis
Ethiopian Journal of Health Development , 2009,
Abstract: This is the sixth update of the bibliography on HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia and Ethiopians in the Diaspora, which was originally published in this journal in 2003. That bibliography covered published and unpublished work on HIV/AIDS and related health conditions (e.g., other sexually transmitted infections, tuberculosis) for the period 1972 to 2002. Five subsequent updates were published in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. The present update extends the bibliography to cover references not listed in previous updates and those recent publications or presentations that appeared in 2008.

Mulatu Lemma
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2004, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171204303418
Abstract: We introduced the logarithmic matrix Lt and studied it as mappings into ℓ and G in 1998 and 2000, respectively. In this paper, we study Lt as mappings into Gw.

Mulatu Lemma
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1999, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171299227755
Abstract: Let t be a sequence in (0,1) that converges to 1, and define the Abel-type matrix A ±,t by ank=(k+ ± ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰k)tnk+1(1 ¢ ’tn) ±+1 for ±> ¢ ’1. The matrix A ±,t determines a sequence-to-sequence variant of the Abel-type power series method of summability introduced by Borwein in [1]. The purpose of this paper is to study these matrices as mappings into ¢ “. Necessary and sufficient conditions for A ±,t to be ¢ “- ¢ “,G- ¢ “, and Gw- ¢ “ are established. Also, the strength of A ±,t in the ¢ “- ¢ “ setting is investigated.

International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2001, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171201006512
Abstract: The Abel-type matrix Aα,t was introduced and studied as a mapping into ℓ by Lemma (1999). The purpose of this paper is to study these transformations as mappings into Gw. The necessary and sufficient conditions for Aα,t to be Gw-Gw are established. The strength of Aα,t in the Gw-Gw setting is investigated. Also, it is shown that Aα,t is translative in the Gw-Gw senses for certain sequences.

Staff Perception towards Leadership in Transforming Wolaita Sodo University: Qualitative Inquiry  [PDF]
Mulatu Dea Lerra
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1100907
Abstract: In the stir of the competitive era of education today, higher education institutions (HEIs) attempt to advance themselves in academic programs, researches and innovations. To this end, they need to transform to realize such aspiration. This study was designed to look at staff perception toward leadership in transforming Wolaita Sodo University. Qualitative research design and case study method are used under the study. Part of the data was collected from a sample of 15 participants. The sample colleges and administration divisions, college deans, department heads, academic and supportive staff were selected through purposive sampling. The tools used to gather relevant data were interview, FGD, and relevant document analysis. Findings of the study revealed that attempt to transform the skill and competence of academic and supportive staff and students’ learning are found to be insignificant; the top academic leaders focus on routine and administrative issues at the expense of emphasis on strategic matters, and changing the prevailed institutional culture. Moreover, there is lack of empowerment of the middle and first line managers who are highly engaged in operationalzing transformation process. Hence, change at Wolaita Sodo University lacks transformational dimension and the change may not make its intended goals. The study recommended that the transformation should primarily focus on developing people through empowering them and giving them responsibilities. The transformational leaders should focus on strategic issues instead of wasting time in changing and re-changing structures. The government needs to avail adequate budget and personnel to help the transformation. The University should also diversify its sources of income instead of relying on government subsidy, and should be autonomous to run its own affairs without direction or influence from any level of government.
Exploring Gender Stereotypes through Managerial Process: Implication for Women Advancement, in Case of WolaitaSodo University  [PDF]
Mulatu Dea, Ayalew Shibeshi
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1101667
Abstract: Despite the fact that there have been a number of research works on gender issues in Ethiopia, little has been done on exploring gender stereotypes through managerial process in higher echelons of leadership position of public universities and its implication for women advancement. Thus, the main objective of this study is to critically explore gender stereotypes though managerial process at WolaitaSodo University and its implications for women advancement. Since the study carried out at the single university level, purposive, availability and random sampling was instrumental for the purpose of this study. Comparisons were done by running cross tabulation of dependent variables across possible explanatory variables. One way ANOVA was also used to see the variation between and within the groups. To analyze the relationship between a set of predictor variables and dependent variables, correlation was employed. SPSS statistics 20 and STATA 11 software packages were used to undertake the statistical analysis. The result reveals that lion share of academic leadership positions of the university is occupied by masculine and women managers are more characterized by communal, relation oriented and transformational leadership behaviors and that the women themselves are reluctant to assume additional responsibilities of the university academic leadership positions and develop poor self-image. It is recommended that aloofness of rules and regulation application, support and encouragement, motivation and aspiration, lack of sex discrimination in hiring and promoting women should be continuously maintained to advance more women to leadership positions of the university and to attract more female to the positions.
Prophylactic treatment uptake and compliance with recommended follow up among HIV exposed infants: a retrospective study in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Mulatu Shargie, Frida Eek, Addisalem Abaychew
BMC Research Notes , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1756-0500-4-563
Abstract: A retrospective quantitative study design was used for data collection through two hospitals. All infants who were delivered by HIV infected mothers between October 2008 and August 2009 were included and information regarding treatment adherence during their first 6 months of age was collected.118 HIV exposed infant-mother pairs were included in the study. 107 (90.7%) infants received ARV prophylaxis at birth. Sixty six (56%) of the infants were found to be adherent to co-trimoxazole prophylactic treatment. The majority (n = 110(93.2%)) of infants were tested HIV negative with DNA/PCR HIV test at the age of sixth weeks. Infants who took ARV prophylaxis at birth were found to be more likely to adhere with co-trimoxazole treatment: [OR = 9.43(95% CI: 1.22, 72.9)]. Similarly, infants whose mothers had been enrolled for HIV/ART care in the same facility [OR = 14(95% CI: 2.6, 75.4)], and children whose fathers were tested and known to be HIV positive [OR = 3.0(95% CI: 1.0, 9.0)] were more likely to adhere than their counterparts. Infants feeding practice was also significantly associated with adherence χ2 -test, p < 0.01.The proportion of ARV uptake at birth among HIV exposed infants were found to be high compared to other similar settings. Mother-infant pair enrolment in the same facility and the infant's father being tested and knew their HIV result were major predictors of infants adhering to treatment and follow up. However, large numbers of infants were lost to follow up.Children under 15 years of age are being infected by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) mainly through mother-to-child transmission (MTCT). According to World Health Organization (WHO) 2007 report daily HIV infection among children less than 15 years old is estimated to be 1,500 [1]. In low income countries, especially in Africa, all children born by HIV infected mothers are supposed to receive co-trimoxazole (trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole) prophylaxis to prevent the occurrence of Pneumocystis jirov
