To determine the characteristics of hospital morbidity and mortality in the paediatric department of the Roi Baudouin Hospital in children aged 1 to 60 months, a retrospective descriptive and analytical study from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2021 was conducted. The in-hospital mortality rate was 0.96% and the factors associated with death were the age group 1-12 months (p<0.001 and 0R=5.33), acute malnutrition (p=0.007 and OR=3.37) and cardiac disease (p=0.017 and 0R=5.1).
