Abstract:The present study aims to understand determinants of childhood nutrition and health in Togo from 1990s to 2006. Using the 1998 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the 2006 Multiple Indicators Cluster Survey (MICS), the method is based on inequality indices and a decomposition approach. The main findings show that, even if child inequalities seem moderate, they remain a stark reality in Togo. Strong pure inequalities, generally attributable to natural variations, are observed as well as significant regional disparities, both for pure and social health inequalities.
