As in most developing countries, anemia is a significant public health concern in Cameroon. Its prevalence is well above the 40% threshold established by the World Health Organization (WHO) above which anemia is considered severe. More than three out of five children under 5 years of age are anemic, predominantly in rural areas (64.4%). The goal of our study is to add to the store of knowledge about the factors that explain the high prevalence of anemia among children in Cameroon.
