What is it about?
We examined the relationships between socio-economic conditions and child health among African nations. Combining the child-health metrics of incidence of stunting, respiratory infections, diarrhoeal disease, infectious disease, and injuries increased, we show that rising per-capita GDP, increasing access to clean water and improved sanitation, reduced household density, and better environmental performance best explained better health outcomes for children in Africa.
