Long-term morbidity and mortality following hypoxaemic lower respiratory tract infection in Gambian children. (1/373)

Acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) are the main cause of death in young children worldwide. We report here the results of a study to determine the long-term survival of children admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia. The study was conducted on 190 Gambian children admitted to hospital in 1992-94 for ALRI who survived to discharge. Of these, 83 children were hypoxaemic and were treated with oxygen, and 107 were not. On follow-up in 1996-97, 62% were traced. Of the children with hypoxaemia, 8 had died, compared with 4 of those without. The mortality rates were 4.8 and, 2.2 deaths per 100 child-years of follow-up for hypoxaemic and non-hypoxaemic children, respectively (P = 0.2). Mortality was higher for children who had been malnourished (Z-score < -2) when seen in hospital (rate ratio = 3.2; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.03-10.29; P = 0.045). Children with younger siblings experienced less frequent subsequent respiratory infections (rate ratio for further hospitalization with respiratory illness = 0.15; 95% CI = 0.04-0.50; P = 0.002). Children in Gambia who survive hospital admission with hypoxaemic pneumonia have a good prognosis. Survival depends more on nutritional status than on having been hypoxaemic. Investment in oxygen therapy appears justified, and efforts should be made to improve nutrition in malnourished children with pneumonia.  (+info)

Severity and timing of stunting in the first two years of life affect performance on cognitive tests in late childhood. (2/373)

Undernutrition in infancy and early childhood is thought to adversely affect cognitive development, although evidence of lasting effects is not well established. With the use of data from the Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Study, we assesshere the relationship between stunting in the first 2 y of life and later cognitive development, focusing on the significance of severity, timing and persistence of early stunting. The sample included > 2000 Filipino children administered a cognitive ability test at ages 8 and 11 y. Stunting status was determined on the basis of anthropometric data collected prospectively between birth and age 2 y. Children stunted between birth and age 2 y had significantly lower test scores than nonstunted children, especially when stunting was severe. The shortfall in test scores among children stunted in the first 2 y was strongly related to reduced schooling, which was the result of a substantial delay in initial enrollment as well as higher absenteeism and repetition of school years among stunted children. Interactions between stunting and schooling were not significant, indicating that stunted and nonstunted children benefitted similarly from additional schooling. After multivariate adjustment, severe stunting at age 2 y remained significantly associated with later deficits in cognitive ability. The timing of stunting was also related to test performance, largely because children stunted very early also tended to be severely stunted (chi(2) P = 0.000). Deficits in children's scores were smaller at age 11 y than at age 8 y, suggesting that adverse effects may decline over time. Results emphasize the need to prevent early stunting and to provide adequate schooling to disadvantaged children.  (+info)

Relationship between health services, socioeconomic variables and inadequate weight gain among Brazilian children. (3/373)

This ecological analysis assessed the relative contribution of behavioural, health services and socioeconomic variables to inadequate weight gain in infants (0-11 months) and children (12-23 months) in 140 municipalities in the State of Ceara, north-east Brazil. To assess the total effect of selected variables, we fitted three unique sets of multivariate linear regression models to the prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants and in children. The final predictive models included variables from the three sets. Findings showed that participation in growth monitoring and urbanization were inversely and significantly associated with the prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants, accounting for 38.3% of the variation. Female illiteracy rate, participation in growth monitoring and degree of urbanization were all positively associated with prevalence of inadequate weight gain in children. Together, these factors explained 25.6% of the variation. Our results suggest that efforts to reduce the average municipality-specific female illiteracy rate, in combination with participation in growth monitoring, may be effective in reducing municipality-level prevalence of inadequate weight gain in infants and children in Ceara.  (+info)

Nutritional and health status of Tibetan children living at high altitudes. (4/373)

BACKGROUND: Children living at high altitudes often have delayed growth, but whether growth retardation is related to altitude or to other factors is not known. METHODS: A multicultural health care team assessed 2078 Tibetan children 0 to 84 months of age for anthropometric and clinical signs of malnutrition. The children lived in 11 counties, which contained more than 50 diverse urban and nonurban (nomadic, agricultural, or periurban) communities in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. The height and weight of the children were compared with those of U.S. children. Height and weight were expressed as z scores (the number of standard deviations from the median of the age- and sex-specific reference group). RESULTS: The mean z score for height fell from -0.5 to -1.6 in the first 12 months of life and generally ranged from -2.0 to -2.4 in older children. Overall, of 2078 children, 1067 (51 percent) had moderately or severely stunted growth, as defined by a z score of -2.0 or lower. Of the 1556 children 24 months of age or older, 871 (56 percent) had stunted growth, which was severe (z score, -3.0 or lower) in 380 (24 percent). Among the children in this age group, 787 of the 1313 nonurban children (60 percent) had stunting, as compared with 84 of the 243 urban children (35 percent). Stunting was associated with clinical conditions such as rickets, abdominal distention, hair depigmentation, and skin lesions and with a maternal history of hepatitis or goiter. Stunting was not associated with altitude, after adjustment for the type of community. CONCLUSIONS: In Tibetan children, severe stunting due to malnutrition occurs early in life, and morbidity is high.  (+info)

Retinol binding protein as a surrogate measure for serum retinol: studies in vitamin A-deficient children from the Republic of the Marshall Islands. (5/373)

BACKGROUND: Serum retinol is transported by retinol binding protein (RBP), which has one high-affinity binding site for retinol; consequently, the molar ratio of retinol to RBP in the circulation is approximately 1 to 1. In vitamin A deficiency (VAD), both serum retinol and RBP decline. However, the retinol-RBP relation has not been well studied in populations with a high incidence of severe VAD. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether RBP is a good surrogate for serum retinol at the very low retinol concentrations encountered in VAD. DESIGN: The stoichiometric relation between retinol and RBP was studied in 239 Marshallese children: 65 with severe VAD (< or = 0.35 micromol retinol/L), 94 with moderate VAD (0.36-0.70 micromol retinol/L), and 80 with vitamin A sufficiency (> 0.70 micromol retinol/L). RESULTS: Excellent correlation between retinol and RBP (r = 0.94) was observed across all retinol concentrations. Severe VAD was predicted with 96% sensitivity and 91% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.48 micromol/L, whereas moderate VAD was predicted with 87% sensitivity and 98% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.70 micromol/L. CONCLUSIONS: The use of RBP results in the classification of essentially the same children with VAD as does retinol, and RBP is an excellent surrogate for serum retinol. Considering the relative ease of measuring RBP with immunodiagnostic kits compared with that of serum retinol by HPLC, the use of RBP concentrations to assess VAD may be particularly advantageous in field settings. Consequently, measuring RBP concentrations may be a practical alternative to measuring serum retinol in population surveys assessing the prevalence of VAD.  (+info)

Introduction. Symposium: Obesity in developing countries: biological and ecological factors. (6/373)

Over the past decade there has been an increasing concern about the impact of chronic, noncommunicable diseases on the health of developing world populations. Traditionally, major causes of illness and death in developing countries have been linked to infectious diseases and undernutrition, and these are still major public health problems in several regions of the world. But recent projections indicate that in 20 y noncommunicable diseases will account for over 60% of the disease burden and mortality in the developing world. Obesity is recognized as an underlying risk factor for many of these chronic conditions. As in developed societies, the risk for obesity in developing countries is also strongly influenced by diet and lifestyle, which are changing dramatically as a result of the economic and nutrition transition. This symposium discusses key aspects of the phenomenon of obesity in the developing world and provides some specific examples from countries facing increasing prevalence of that condition.  (+info)

Early nutrition and later adiposity. (7/373)

The objective was to review whether nutrition during pregnancy and the first 3 y of life predisposes individuals to be fatter as adults. The roles of undernutrition, overnutrition and breastfeeding were considered. The evidence that poor nutrition in early life is a risk factor for increased fatness later in life is inconclusive. Overnutrition, as proxied by high birthweight or gestational diabetes, on the other hand, is associated with subsequent fatness. Two large, well-conducted studies in developed countries suggest that breastfeeding has a protective effect. Nutrition in early life has a demonstrable but small impact on adult obesity.  (+info)

Severe malnutrition among young children--Georgia, January 1997-June 1999. (8/373)

In October 1999, the Georgia Department of Human Resources (GDHR) was notified of two cases of severe malnutrition in toddlers. Both cases were associated with the use of commercial alternative milk. In response, GDHR and CDC reviewed Georgia hospital records to assess the frequency and cause of hospitalized cases of rickets and protein energy malnutrition (PEM). The findings of this review indicated that, although no new cases were associated with milk alternatives, three children had PEM and six had vitamin D deficiency rickets. The children with rickets had been breast fed for approximately 6 months while receiving no vitamin D supplementation. Rickets is preventable through the adequate intake of vitamin D. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is examining vitamin D supplementation among breast-fed infants.  (+info)

For years, malnutrition has been affecting 450,000 children from 0-5 years old in Angola. A malnourished child finds that their body has difficulty doing normal things such as growing and resisting disease. It becomes problematic to develop, even learning abilities can be diminished. If the food they eat does not provide the proper amounts of micronutrients, vitamins, proteins and minerals to meet daily nutritional requirements, they will become malnourished.

In Africa, two important agricultural research centres the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in Nigeria, and the French Conseil National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) have developed food supplements using a soya-bean base to be given to small children in the process of being weaned. Experiments have shown that these soya compounds provide a substitute which could replace milk. The objective is to supply children aged between 6 months and 2 years with a foodstuff both suited to their increased energy and protein requirements and tolerated by their digestive systems, since children cannot in fact break down the same foodstuffs as adults. In addition, the basic foodstuffs of families in the low-income group (ie maize flour, sorghum and cassava) provide the right quantities of food needed to satisfy a childs hunger, but not his protein requirements. The soya meal developed by the CNRS and IITA combines both maize flour and meal from shelled, improved soyabean, grounded ...

Contrary to popular belief among world relief workers, children in developing countries may not be eating enough protein, which could contribute to stunted growth, a Johns Hopkins-directed study suggests.
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Up to at least one in six older adults dwelling on their very own may not be getting adequate nutrition, a research from Sweden suggests.. They found that nationwide, wasted meals contained an estimated 1,200 energy, in addition to 146 grams of carbohydrate, 33 g of protein, 6 g of fiber, 286 milligrams of calcium, 2 mg of vitamin D and 900 mg of potassium per particular person per day, among different nutrients. Healthy lunch proponents expressed probably the most concern about enjoyable efforts to scale back extreme dietary sodium, which is linked to hypertension, heart attack and stroke. Researchers then examined them in 2008, when they were 43 years outdated, for metabolic syndrome, a set of danger elements that can result in heart illness, diabetes and stroke..

The study of more than 15,000 elderly people in China suggests that fighting hunger throughout childhood not only saves lives and improves health but also may enhance cognitive well-being in late life. The study appears in the journal Social Science & Medicine.. Across the world, 178 million children under age 5 are stunted or short in stature due to hunger, infection or both, said Zhenmei Zhang, MSU assistant professor of sociology and lead researcher on the project.. "Its important for policymakers to know that investing in children really has long-term benefits, not only for those individuals but for society as a whole," Zhang said. "For example, fighting childhood hunger can reduce future medical expenditures. Its very expensive for families and society to take care of people who suffer from dementia or cognitive impairment.". Zhang said researchers previously have focused on how childhood malnutrition affects physical health and mortality, with little attention devoted to the long-term, ...
In a surprise move yesterday before heading out for five weeks of recess, the Senate passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act with unanimous consent, which means all 100 senators agreed to pass the bill without an individual vote. The bill allots an additional $4.5 billion dollars over ten years to fund federal child nutrition programs including school lunch.. First Lady Michelle Obama supported the bill as part of her Lets Move campaign to fight childhood obesity, writing in an op-ed in The Washington Post last week,"This groundbreaking legislation will bring fundamental change to schools and improve the food options available to our children.". Though providing less than the requested $10 billion suggested by Lets Move, this marks the first major step towards the most significant increase in funding on the child nutrition programs in 30 years. In a statement yesterday, the First Lady said, "While childhood obesity cannot be solved overnight, with everyone working together, theres no ...

The poorer nutrition in smoking families comes not only because they buy less food in total, but also because the food they buy tends to be of lower quality. The surveys show that, compared to non-smoking families, families with a smoker spend a larger budget share on rice and a smaller share on meats, fruits and vegetables, which are nutrient-rich, but more expensive.. Nearly 60 percent of Indonesian men smoke. Rates are similarly high-and increasing-in other developing Asian nations. Block and Webbs research suggests that these increasing rates pose a dual threat to developing nations. "The combination of direct health threats from smoking coupled with the potential loss of [food] consumption among children linked to tobacco expenditure presents a development challenge of the highest order," the researchers conclude.

Parents are important role models in their childrens nutrition. When children are exposed to novel flavors prenatally via amniotic fluid or during infancy via breast milk, the acceptance of those particular flavors is highly increased. Therefore, it is imperative that parents have healthy dietary habits if they expect their children to learn how to make nutritious…
When considering your childs nutrition, it is important to keep them involved throughout the whole process. This will excite the child because of the sense of importance they will feel. Bring them to the store with you and have them help you pick out foods that they like and that are healthy. Be sure to not give into purchasing everything that the child desires. When back home, have them help you with the meal preparation ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new treatment guidelines for children under-five who have severe acute malnutrition.. Close to 20 million children worldwide are suffering from the condition. Severe acute malnutrition is when children suffer severe wasting that may or may not be accompanied by swelling of the body from fluid retention.. Now, children with no evident medical complications can be effectively treated at home with specially-formulated foods that provide energy and nutrients and antibiotic medicines.. Dr Francesco Branca is the Director of WHOs Department of Nutrition for Health and Development.. "Now we have some high energy foods which can be consumed in the community. So the community management of acute malnutrition actually helped reduce dramatically mortality for severe acute malnutrition. So that is probably the main element now reflecting in this …. is a new way to treat children with new tools. But also some better understanding and approaches to treating ...
Objective: To determine whether paternal smoking is associated with an increased risk of child malnutrition among families in rural Indonesia.. Methods: The relation between paternal smoking and child malnutrition was examined in a population-based sample of 438 336 households in the Indonesia Nutrition and Health Surveillance System, 2000-2003. Main outcome measures were child underweight (weight-for-age Z score ,−2) and stunting (height-for-age Z score ,−2) and severe underweight and severe stunting, defined by respective Z scores ,−3, for children aged 0-59 months of age.. Results: The prevalence of paternal smoking was 73.7%. The prevalence of underweight and stunting was 29.4% and 31.4%, and of severe underweight and severe stunting was 5.2%, and 9.1%, respectively. After adjusting for child gender, child age, maternal age, maternal education, weekly per capita household expenditure and province, paternal smoking was associated with an increased risk of underweight (odds ratio (OR) ...
1. In order to achieve early identification of children with severe acute malnutrition in the community, trained community health workers and community members should measure the mid-upper arm circumference of infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and examine them for bilateral pitting oedema. Infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and have a mid-upper arm circumference ,115 mm, or who have any degree of bilateral oedema should be immediately referred for full assessment at a treatment centre for the management of severe acute malnutrition.. 2. In primary health-care facilities and hospitals, health-care workers should assess the mid-upper arm circumference or the weight-for-height/weight-for-length status of infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and also examine them for bilateral oedema. Infants and children who are 6-59 months of age and have a mid-upper arm circumference ,115 mm or a weight-for-height/length ,-3 Z-scores of the WHO growth standards, or have ...
Adequate nutrition is essential in early childhood to ensure healthy growth, proper organ formation and function, a strong immune system, and neurological and cognitive development. Child malnutrition - as measured by poor child growth - is an important indicator for monitoring population nutritional status and health. In 2013, about 17%, or 98 million children under five years of age in developing countries were underweight (low weight-for-age according to the WHO child growth standards). Underweight prevalence is highest in the United Nation (UN) region of Southern Asia (30%), followed by Western Africa (21%), Oceania and Eastern Africa (both 19%) and South-Eastern Asia and Middle Africa (both 16%), and Southern Africa 12%. Prevalence below 10% for 2013 is estimated for the UN regions of Eastern, Central and Western Asia, Northern Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean. Childhood malnutrition, including fetal growth restriction, suboptimum breastfeeding, stunting, wasting and Vitamin A and zinc
Downloadable! In Burkina Faso, the analysis of the impact of the regional urbanization in terms of child malnutrition of less than 5 years, based on a spatial econometrics approach according tothe administrative division of the 30 provinces, using the demographic and health surveys of 1992-93 and 1998-99, arrives at three conclusions. Firstly, the urbanization is accompanied, on the one hand, of a reduction of the levels of wasting, underweight and stunting - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization generates a reduction from 5,2 to 5,8 percent of the rate of child malnutrition of less than 5 years -, and,on the other hand, of a rise in the inequality of child malnutrition, expressed by the relationsweight for age and height for age - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization implies a rise of about 30 percent in the inequality indicators of child malnutrition, except wasting. In addition, if the level of stunting increased between 1992-93 and 1998-99, the econometric estimates do not
BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Child malnutrition cost the Philippines $7 billion or nearly 3 percent of its GDP in one year in terms of education spending and lost productivity, while hunger-related stunting is on the rise among children, a global aid agency said on Tuesday.. A report by Save the Children found that the combined losses, calculated with data from 2013, are more than triple the cost of damage inflicted by 15 natural disasters that hit the Southeast Asian country last year.. "Stunting costs are a drag on the economy and impacts all of us, not just the child and the family. It keeps the Filipino economy poorer by 3 percent. If you add that up over time - its an anchor to progress," said Ned Olney, head of Save the Children in the Philippines, by Skype from Manila.. Stunting is defined as low height-for-age and is measured by comparing the height of a child against the international benchmark for a child of the same age.. Caused by a poor diet in a childs first 1,000 days ...

In developing countries, about 26 million children under age 5 suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The odds of mortality from any disease are nine times higher for children with SAM as comparing with their well-nourished peers. The management of SAM was previously restricted to hospital-based treatment, but the Outpatient Therapeutic feeding Program (OTP) and ready-to-use therapeutic foods have brought SAM management closer to the community.. Yebyo et al. conducted a retrospective cohort study in Ethiopia on 628 children who were treated for SAM in the OTP from 2008 to 2012. The authors used the demographic, anthropometric, disease, medication, and therapeutic feeding data to explore program outcomes and determinants of the childrens recovery rate. Upon admission to OTP, children received a weekly PlumpyNut (ready-to-use therapeutic food) ration according to their body weight. They were also supposed to receive a routine treatment regimen including Vitamin A, folic acid, antibiotics, ...
Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) affects approximately 13 million children under-five and is associated with over 1.5 million preventable child deaths each year. Case fatality rates in hospitals treating SAM remain at 20-30%, and coverage of those affected remains low. Training and support to improve centre-based management can reduce case fatality rates. However, an exclusive inpatient approach does not consider the many barriers to accessing treatment that exist for poor people in the developing world. Community-based therapeutic care (CTC) is a new approach for the management of SAM that uses Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) and triage to refer cases without complications to outpatient care and those with complications to inpatient treatment. This thesis aims to test the hypotheses that a CTC strategy can treat children with SAM effectively and can achieve better population treatment coverage than a centre-based approach. Five studies, using primary data, are presented. The first 3 ...
Background: Malnutrition is of major public health concern worldwide. The prevalence of severe acute malnutrition/wasting is increasing nationally and..
Poor health and malnutrition in preschool children are longstanding problems in Bangladesh. Gut microbiota plays a tremendous role in nutrient absorption and determining the state of health. In this study, metagenomic tool was employed to assess the gut microbiota composition of healthy and malnourished children. DNA was extracted from fecal samples of seven healthy and seven malnourished children (n = 14; age 2-3 years) were analyzed for the variable region of 16S rRNA genes by universal primer PCR followed by high-throughput 454 parallel sequencing to identify the bacterial phyla and genera. Our results reveal that the healthy children had a significantly higher number of operational taxonomic unit in their gut than that of the malnourished children (healthy vs. malnourished: 546 vs. 310). In malnourished children, bacterial population of the phyla Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes accounted for 46 and 18%, respectively. Conversely, in healthy children, Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes accounted for 5%
Using data collected in the Community and Family Survey of the Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples Region, this study estimates the level of child malnutrition and identifies the factors associated with chronic malnutrition among children in the five densely populated zones of the Region. A total of 850 children aged 3 - 36 months were included in the present study. Both bivariate and multivariate techniques were employed in order to identify risk factors of child malnutrition. The results indicate that about 45% of children are stunted, 42% underweight, and 12% wasted. The search for the factors affecting long-term nutritional status point to both socio-economic and demographic factors. Among the socio-economic factors, household economic status and womens education were important in explaining the variation in long-term nutritional status of children. From the demographic variables included in the analysis, age, preceding birth interval and number of under-five children were associated ...
Gaborone, Botswana, 16 May 2012 Household survey data shows that stunting among under-five year-olds is twice as high among children in the poorest households than those in the richest. Stunting is a strong indicator of inadequate child growth and development, reflecting chronic lack of nutrition, care and general health. National household surveys are routinely conducted by Central Statistics Office Botswana and they track progress against basic nutrition indicators. In recent years, these have included the Multiple Indicator Cluster/ Botswana Family Health Survey (BFHS) series, generating data for 2000 and 2007 (CSO, 2001 and 2009). While the survey reports have valuable national data on child nutrition indicators, they rarely disaggregate indicators to facilitate a full appreciation of the distribution of child nutrition indicators across various socio-demographic factors and geographic areas. In order to make greater use of the survey data, the Government of Botswana with support from ...
The Government of Ethiopia recognized the need for providing equitable access to promotive, preventive, and selected curative health services to its people, and launched the health extension program (HEP) in 2003 to facilitate achieving universal access to Primary Health Care and accelerate the countrys progress, including reducing hunger and child mortality [18]. Child nutrition is one of the seven major components of the health extension packages which is the responsibility of the Health Extension Workers [19].. Due to the above efforts, Ethiopia has made a considerable progress in several dimensions, including reducing the burden of child malnutrition [3]. In the country, food insecurity remain a big challenge and over 30% of the population are below the food poverty line, unable to afford the minimum caloric intake for a healthy and active life [15]. The magnitude of the problem is not uniform throughout the country due to different reasons [13]. In Ethiopia, the government Health Policy ...
The case fatality rate for malnutrition at St Barnabas Hospital over the past years has been around 38%. The rates in other district hospitals in the Eastern Cape province were found to be in excess of 30%. In June 2000, the Eastern Cape Department of Health introduced a protocol for in-patient management of children with severe malnutrition, with the aim of reducing case fatality rate below 10%. St Barnabas Hospital introduced the Eastern Cape protocol in August 2003. An evaluation was done in November 2003 to assess the protocols impact on the case fatality rate. The rate remained high, at 37.5%. This study descibed the current practices and attitudes of the nurses as St Barnabas Hospital paediatric ward, in the management of severely malnourished childen ...
One in three pre-school children in the developing world is undernourished. As a consequence, their human rights are violated. In addition, they are more likely to have impaired immune systems, poorer cognitive development, lower productivity as adults, and greater susceptibility to diet-related chronic diseases such as hypertension and coronary heart disease later in life. Undernourished female preschoolers are likely to grow into undernourished young women who are more likely to give birth to babies who are undernourished even before they are born, thus perpetuating the inter-generational transmission of deprivation. Reducing these unacceptably high numbers remains a tremendous challenge to public policy. As a guide to the direction of future efforts, this research report examines the success of the efforts of the past 25 years to reduce preschooler undernutrition. The report uses an econometric model to identify the factors associated with the reduction in undernutrition. The formulation of ...
Videos uploaded to a social media website show the extent of malnutrition in besieged rebel areas of Damascus. Rough cut (no reporter narration).
due to their geographical location and topography, as well as famines such as the one that is currently sweeping most of Southern and Central Malawi. But, once you dig deeper, you will realize the issue is much more than environmental inhibitors.. Children under five are victims of the most hunger related deaths, more so than any other demographic. In many nations, such as Malawi, Africa, there is a cultural hierarchy-one that unfortunately promotes children eating last. The youngest child is the last to eat at every meal, and these children rarely eat once they are finished breastfeeding. Hunger and malnutrition therefore kill more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Malnutrition weakens the childrens resistance and increases the risk of dying from pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, measles or AIDS. Many malnourished children die because they are vulnerable to repeated bouts of disease and infection. Most of the damage caused by malnutrition occurs in children before ...
Although Guinea-Bissau has made progress in reducing its child mortality rate, one in 7 children still die before reaching the age of 5 and more than a quarter of all children under 5 are stunted.

Well, noone but about 3% of Iraqis would genuinely want the old regime back. But just as in Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet bloc, noone was ever given the choice as to what they did want. And at least the latter was a revolution driven in large part by popular struggle. In this revolution from above (shades of Hungary, Czechoslovakia etc), there was never even the potential for Iraqis to be able to impact the outcome except by resisting the revolutionaries. This is exactly what the fellow-travellers of Empire, mimicking a past generation of fellow-travellers, refuse to accept ...

Agnès Binagwaho, Niloo Ratnayake, Mary C. Smith Fawzi. [PDF version]. At a time when accountability is a key message for countries, constituencies, and organizations, it is important that major multilateral agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) are also held accountable for actions taken or not taken. This article first reviews the methods of monitoring growth and development among children under five years of age by the WHO. It then addresses the fact that the WHO delayed disseminating new Child Growth Standards. In addition, the need for more technical support by the WHO for managing chronic malnutrition in young children is needed. This delay has cost the lives of malnourished children around the world.. Malnutrition can account for up to 50% of deaths among children under the age of five since it is a significant underlying factor of child mortality. In developing countries, approximately 25% of children in this age range are moderately or severely malnourished (underweight ...
OVID-MEDLINE, EMBASE, COCHRANE, GLOBAL-HEALTH, CINAHL, POPLINE, AFRICA-WIDE-NiPAD, and LILACS were searched for AB efficacy, bacterial resistance, and infection rates in SAM. Following PRISMA guidelines, a systematic review and meta-analysis were performed. Three randomised controlled trials (RCT), five Cochrane reviews, and 37 observational studies were identified. One cohort-study showed no increase in nutritional-cure and mortality in uncomplicated SAM where no AB were used. (p>0.05). However, an unpublished RCT in this setting did show mortality benefits. Another RCT did not show superiority of ceftriaxone over amoxicilllin for these same outcomes, but adressed SAM children with and without complications (p = 0.27). Another RCT showed no difference between amoxicillin and cotrimoxazole efficacies for pneumonia in underweight, but not SAM. Our meta-analysis of 12 pooled susceptibility-studies for all types of bacterial isolates, including 2767 stricly SAM children, favoured amoxicillin over ...

Out of the 112 districts surveyed, 100 were selected from the bottom of a child development district index developed for UNICEF India in 2009 and are referred to as the 100 Focus Districts in the report. The 100 districts are located in 6 states. The 112 districts were categorized under 3 heads, namely, 100 Focus Districts (100FD), 6 best districts from focus states (6BDF) and 6 best districts from best states (6BD). The survey shows a positive change for child nutrition happening in India, inclusive of the 100 Focus Districts. But the rates of child malnutrition are still seen to be very high particularly in the Focus Districts where over 40 per cent of children are underweight and almost 60 per cent are stunted ...

This fact sheet provides a brief summary of the methodology of the 2007 Australian National Childrens Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey.
by Michael Clemens and Gabriel Demombynes. Contrary to persistent perceptions that sub-Saharan Africa is mired in intractable misery, many of the regions countries have experienced sustained economic growth, deepening democracy, improving governance, and decreasing poverty in recent years.. To take just one aspect of the African Renaissance, in five of six countries for which recent data is available-Malawi, Tanzania, Rwanda, Nigeria, and Ghana-rates of child malnutrition as measured by stunting have declined in the last decade. Because so much is changing in Africa, it is crucial to take this "background" change into account when evaluating the impact of local policy interventions.. This is evident when considering the Millennium Villages Project (MVP) evaluation, which we critiqued in a peer-reviewed journal article. Recently, we examined the three peer-reviewed papers that dealt with the MVPs impacts and showed that they do not back up the projects claims of large impacts, in part because ...

The fight against severe acute malnutrition - which, according to UNICEF, kills between 3.5 and 5 million children under five every year in developing countries - has been a priority for international NGOs and for various United Nations agencies for several decades now. While addressing this ongoing emergency, it is also vital to provide specific nutritional products for the millions of people suffering from moderate to acute malnutrition, and to devise nutritional supplements that are easily affordable for very low-income population groups in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Until recently, all such interventions were left to trial and error in the field; but now they have been made possible thanks to the technological breakthroughs of a French company. Nutriset - founded 25 years ago - is now a leading actor in the humanitarian sector. Its industrial applications and research, in collaboration with the scientific and humanitarian communities, have brought about a genuine revolution in all three areas.
Objectives: To find out the nutritional status of under-six children attending ICDS scheme and to study Anganwadi workers (AWW) perceived work load and operational problems. Material and Methods: A triangulated research design of quantitative (survey) and qualitative (Venn diagram, seasonal calendar) methods was used. Nutritional status of children was assessed by a survey. Participatory methods like Venn diagram and Seasonal calendars were used to collect qualitative data regarding AWWs perceived work load and food security with malnourished children. Results: Overall, prevalence of underweight and severe underweight among children under-six was found to be 53% and 15% respectively and among children below three years it was 47% and 15% respectively. Venn diagram showed AWWs multiple responsibilities. In seasonal diagram exercise, the mothers of severely malnourished children showed enough food availability in their house across all months of a year. Conclusion: To efficiently tap the ...

Background: The community based management of severe acute malnutrition (CMAM) was introduced in Ghana in 2008 to manage cases of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) recorded at the community level. This study estimated the economic cost of the CMAM programme for children under-five in the Agona west municipality of Ghana. Methods: A retrospective cross sectional study that used a cost analysis design was employed to estimate the economic cost of the programme from the societal perspective. Household cost data from caregivers were obtained using a semi-structured questionnaire. That of programme cost data was obtained from document reviews as well as the use of semi-structured questionnaires and subsequent discussions with key personnel of the Ghana Health Service, Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance and UNICEF. One and multi-way sensitivity analyses were conducted to test how sensitive the cost estimates are to certain variations in the cost profiles. Results: The economic household cost of CMAM was
Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) is a measurement of the nutritional status of a population that is often used in protracted refugee situations. Along with the Crude Mortality Rate, it is one of the basic indicators for assessing the severity of a humanitarian crisis. To evaluate levels of GAM, workers in an emergency measure the weight and height of children between 6 and 59 months. They then use the results as a proxy for the health of the population as a whole. The weight to height index is compared to the same index for a reference population that has no shortage of nutrition. All children with weight less than 80% of the median weight of children with the same height in the reference population, and/or suffering from Oedema, are classified as GAM. The World Health Organization describes Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) as GAM in the 79% - 70% range, and Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) as GAM below 70%. An alternative definition is that a child suffers from GAM if their weight to height ...

Voitek Asztabski, an emergency coordinator for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said, "The living conditions are appalling, there is not enough shelter, there is not enough food, there is not enough water," AFP writes (Vaughan, 12/25). An accompanying AFP video adds that while "[t]he aid the families receive contains all the nutrients they need … some people are choosing to sell their ...
Currently in India, a major challenge in reducing undernutrition is bringing sectors together to deliver for a common goal. In this paper the authors describe a possible framework to enable convergence across sectors for action on nutrition. The framework notes that issues related to convergence must be resolved in relation to three major steps in the policy process: policy formulation, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. Although convergence between nutrition and health has long been recognized as a barrier to improving child undernutrition in India, the authors found that actual convergence has been limited and somewhat ineffectual ...
It is no secret that India has had an appalling record in keeping her children healthy.. It is no secret that India has had an appalling record in keeping her children healthy. The country records deaths of over a million children annually before their fifth birthday due to under-nutrition-related causes. For matters of comparison, that number is higher than the entire population of Bhutan. Among the ones lucky enough to survive, more than half end up anaemic and almost 40 per cent are either stunted or underweight. It is shocking that despite losing precious segments of its population each year, discussions around its causes in the mainstream media are virtually non-existent.. Amartya Sen and Jean Dreze tested how frequently issues of health found their way into the editorial pages of Indias leading dailies. It turned out that in more than 300 articles between January and June 2000, there was not even a single health-related one. In a second test during the last six months of 2012, they found ...
In the municipality of Moron, situated in the isolated GrandAnse Department of Haiti, a group of women are making their way towards their shared community garden - a space that has been set up with the help of FAO and its partners, including the French NGO Médecins du Monde, the German Red Cross and various local NGOs.. The community garden has become a neighborhood hub -- buzzing with activity -- where the women farm together, but also regularly attend classes, workshops and practical trainings on how to make informed nutritional choices and improve their production of crops and small livestock.. They are amiably referred to as "mamans lumiéres" by the project staff, a French term meaning "light mothers", because of their willingness to impart any newly acquired knowledge to other women in their community, thus activating a positive ripple effect that has helped to abate child malnutrition in this remote rural area.. "When I was raising my eldest children, I knew very little about healthy ...
Climate change threats to rural India: Flooding linked to child undernutrition, particularly child wasting. Repeated flooding was associated to 3 times higher prevalence of severe wasting.

On the list of the worlds top 10 health risks, hunger continues to occupy the first position. One out of eight people go to sleep hungry every night despite living in a world where there is enough food to feed all of us. Hunger, or undernutrition, is a result of insufficient intake of macro and micro nutrients. It can, and often does, lead to chronic malnutrition or severe wasting associated with acute malnutrition.. A staggering 3.5 million global deaths are attributed to the underlying cause of maternal and child undernutrition. About 51.5 million children under five years of age are acutely malnourished or wasted due to a sudden decrease in nutrient consumption, absorption or retention. Of these, over a third - an estimated 18.7 million children - suffer from severe acute malnutrition (or SAM). In the absence of treatment, death poses a real risk to these young ones. Their access to treatment is fundamental in the struggle to overcome malnutrition. One in every four of the worlds ...
Bhagwati,(left) mother in law to 22 year old Preeti with their kids near Silanagar village outside Shivpuri in Madhya Pradesh state in India. Ignoring offers of help for her malnourished child she simply turned on her heels and left knowing the elder males of the village would refuse permission for her to leave. Despite 15 yeas of economic growth the incidence of child malnutrition has barely changed -- 46 percent of children under 5 in India are malnourished: twice the rate of sub Saharan Africa.. A report released last week said a mixture of poor governance , the caste system dis-empowerment of women and superstition are preventing children from getting the nutrition they need, condemning another generation to brain damage, low earning potential and early death. At the moment 3000 children a day die in India as a result of malnutrition.
