Best Practice and Prevention of Child Wasting Within the Wider Context of Undernutrition

By ENN on 16 August 2021

ENN recently published a brief entitled: Best Practice and Prevention of Child Wasting Within the Wider Context of Undernutrition (read here). The brief is based on work since 2014 by the Wasting Stunting Technical Interest Group (WaSt TIG)3 and the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN). It updates previous reports on wasting prevention by ENN and builds on ENN’s recent position paper on wasting.

The brief is also accompanied by three podcasts, two podcasts exploring what Malawi and Pakistan are doing to prevent wasting as well as an interview to understand UNICEF's prevention plans.
