UNICEF’s approach to Wasting Prevention

By Kate Sadler and Natalie Sessions on 16 August 2021

In this podcast, we chat to Grainne Moloney, Senior Advisor for Early Childhood Nutrition at UNICEF. We discuss UNICEF’s perspective on the prevention of wasting in the context of global action, challenges and knowledge gaps.

This podcast accompanies a recently published brief entitled: Best Practice and Prevention of Child Wasting Within the Wider Context of Undernutrition (read here) and two podcasts where we explore Malawi and Pakistan Ministry of Health’s approach to preventing wasting (Malawi podcast and Pakistan podcast).

Listen to the Wasting Prevention in Malawi podcast and Wasting Prevention in Pakistan podcast.
