Reprint of ‘Protein-energy malnutrition’ by J.C.Waterlow

First published in 1992, but unobtainable for some years, 'Protein-energy malnutrition' has been reprinted, supplemented by 22 pages of updated new material including growth references, exclusive breastfeeding, HIV/AIDS, and malnutrition and mental development. Detailed discussion of treatment is supported by an analysis of the nature of severe and fatal cases. An account of how the existence of malnutrition is characterised in the community by impaired growth, frequent infections and retardation of mental development leads to an analysis of strategy and methods for prevention. Originally targeted at doctors and health workers in developing countries, the revision expands the potential readership to include public health officials, aid agencies and medical advisors.
