    L'objectif général de cette étude est, d'une part, d'identifier et d'analyser les facteurs qui contribuent à l'état de la pauvreté infantile et, d'autre part, d'identifier l'existence d'inégalités de bien-être infantile et d'analyser leurs sources dans quatre pays de l'UEMOA: la Côte d'Ivoire, la Guinée Bissau, le Niger et le Togo. En s'appuyant sur l'approche multidimensionnelle de la pauvreté, les résultats font ressortir que les facteurs qui expliquent la pauvreté infantile dans les pays étudiés sont: l'accès à la vitamine A, la qualité du sel iodé consommé, l'allaitement, la vaccination contre la poliomyélite, la diphtérie, la rougeole et la fièvre jaune, la survenance des maladies telles que la diarrhée, la toux, la fièvre et les difficultés respiratoires. Il apparaît aussi que, l'incidence de la pauvreté infantile multidimensionnelle est de 19,4% au Togo, 21,1% en Côte d'Ivoire, 29,0% en Guinée-Bissau et 49,7% au Niger.
