Maternal and Child Undernutrition

Portrait de Rubina Khan

In 2008, the Lancet published a series on nutrition, and Bhutta and colleagues wrote a global review of the evidence that addresses nutritional interventions that have been scientifically assessed and implemented. In this review, the authors argue that if we were to implement those interventions supported by best evidence, childhood deaths would drop by approximately 25%. These established strategies include breastfeeding, complementary feeding, handwashing to reduce childhood disease burden, micronutrient supplementation, and the management of severe acute malnutrition.
