RESUMO

Information on major depressive disorder (MDD) in primary care settings in sub-Saharan Africa is limited, yet this is required to improve service development. We explored prevalence and factors associated with MDD among adolescents attending a primary care facility in urban Uganda. At Naguru Teenage Information and Health Centre, 281 adolescents were assessed for MDD using the Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview for Children and Adolescents (MINI-Kid). Prevalence and risk factors were determined using frequencies and regressions, respectively. The prevalence of adolescent MDD was 18.2 %. Vulnerability factors were orphanhood, childhood trauma (particularly emotional abuse and physical neglect) while social support was protective. Considerable burden of clinically significant depression exists in primary care settings in Uganda; this may well contribute to a poor quality of life.
