Wasting Prevention: a discussion on how Malawi has reduced wasting prevalence rates

Podcast  /  16 August 2021

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. This podcast accompanies a recently published brief entitled: Best Practice and Prevention of Child Wasting Within the Wider Context of Undernutrition read here.
