*Analysis of risk factors associated to anaemia among children under 5 years was adjusted on the following variables: P. falciparum infection, G6PD deficiency, Sickle cell disorders, Alpha-thallassemia, Access to IPTc drug (SP-AQ), gender. The number of anaemic children in this age group was = 122. Goodness of fit test: Hosmer-Lemeshow, chi(8df)=0.99, p=0.99. † Analysis of risk factors associated to anaemia among children aged from 5 to 10 years was adjusted on the following variables: P. falciparum infection, G6PD deficiency, Access to IPTc drug (SP-AQ), gender. The number of anaemic children was= 54. Goodness of fit test: Hosmer-Lemeshow, chi(6df)=4.22, p=0.64.
