Prevalence of emaciation in two populations (nomadic herders and sedentary agriculturalists) of the Region of Gao in Mali



Prevalence of emaciation in two populations (nomadic herders and sedentary agriculturalists) of the Region of Gao in Mali



Revue d' Epidemiologie et de Sante Publique 36(6): 421-428



The weight to height indices (Z-score) of 1830 children up to 5 years old from the populations of nomadic herders of the Adrar of Iforas and sedentary agriculturalists of the Region of Gao in Mali were compared. The nutritional state of both populations was below the reference population. Prevalence of emaciation (Z-score -2 s.d. or lower) was higher among the agriculturalists than among the herders (34% and 9%, respectively).
