Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of a medically important Gram-positive bacteria, which can be harboured majorly in the nasal cavity. Risk of consequent infection in a person colonized with S. aureus as well as MRSA upsurges with time and remains insistently increased.

Why is it important?

Understanding the overall epidemiology of nasal colonization of S. aureus and MRSA at the country level is so significant to strengthen effective prevention and control strategies.


This meta-analysis was aimed to summarize available data and to determine the pooled prevalence of S. aureus and MRSA nasal colonization in Ethiopia by conducting a meta-analysis.
