Abstract:
The study covers nine countries of Central Africa (Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, DRC, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Chad, and Sao Tome) and relies on a complementary analysis of existing sociodemographic data and collection of original data including biographical, qualitative, and situational surveys. The analysis is based on a complementary combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches. The quantitative approach is based on multilevel model to determine the contribution of each level in the total explanation of the observed differences in the occurrence of unmet needs of RH.
