Abstract

A community-based baseline cross-sectional survey was conducted in three districts in Togo in September 2004 as part of a multidisciplinary evaluation of the impact of the Togo National Integrated Child Health Campaign.

The pre-intervention survey provided baseline malaria and anemia prevalence in children
