Spatial heterogeneity of haemoglobin concentration in preschool-age children in sub-Saharan Africa

Magalhaes, Ricardo Soares; Clements, Archie


Objective To determine whether blood haemoglobin concentration in preschool-age children (< 5 years of age) is geographically heterogeneous in sub-Saharan Africa and describe its association with environmental variables that drive anaemia of different etiologies.
