Abstract

Cet article évalue l'effet de différentes politiques de lutte contre le paludisme, et en particulier de la politique dite de « mise à l'échelle » de la distribution de moustiquaires, sur la probabilité d'anémie des enfants en Afrique subsaharienne. Les données combinent des informations individuelles sur plus de 150 000 enfants et leur famille, et des informations régionales sur l'intensité du paludisme avant le lancement des campagnes, pour seize pays, entre 2000 et 2014. La méthode utilisée est celle des doubles différences, qui teste si les politiques ont entraîné une baisse plus forte de l'anémie dans les régions où l'intensité du paludisme était plus élevée. Les résultats indiquent que la mise à l'échelle a un effet faible ou négligeable sur la probabilité d'anémie modérée ou sévère, tandis que les autres politiques n'ont pas d'effet significatif.
