Abstract
The aim of this work is to study the socio-economic factors in relation to the stunted growth in children from 6 to 59 months in a suburb of Abidjan Cocody Angré. To this end, a cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study was conducted at the community-based health facility in Abidjan (Cocody-Angré) over a period of three months (August to October 2016). In the course of this study, 958 children and mothers / accompanying persons were consulted. Of these children, 58 were stunted. This study found that 53% of children with stunting had mothers aged between 20 and 29 years. Similarly, mothers whose income were comprised between 3 USD and 6 USD registered 67% of growth retardation. Data were collected during the study period through the availability of structure staff, the use of growth curve tables and exchanges with selected mothers using individual questionnaires. These anthropometric data have been determined and compared with international ones. These results should be supplemented by further studies to better define the scope of actions to effectively fight malnutrition among children in the Cocody Angré health area in Côte d'Ivoire.
