Wasting Prevention: a discussion on how Malawi has reduced wasting prevalence rates
In this podcast, we interview Sylvester Kathumba, Nutrition Focal Point in the Ministry of Health, Malawi. The prevalence of wasted children in Malawi has reduced from 4% in 2010 to 1.8% in 2018 and this podcast aims to explore how this encouraging reduction in the prevalence and burden of wasting was achieved.
This podcast aims to be a resource, for programmers, practitioners and policy makers involved in nutrition, and will support improved understanding of current thinking on wasting prevention.
