Papers and publications
28 December 2018: Click here to read ENN's latest publication on outcomes and risk factors of severe malnutrition in infants aged <6 months in Bangladesh.
19 December 2018: Three papers from the WaSt TIG are now available. They contain some findings that surprised us (Having ‘multiple anthropometric deficits’ IS the same as being concurrently wasted and stunted, and boys are more affected than girls) and some findings that highlighted the wisdom of the past (weight-for-age is back! and Professor Waterlow was right about wasting and stunting all along). Read our WaSt Policy brief for more information on the implications of this research in Arabic, English, French and Spanish. Thanks to Irish Aid and USAID/OFDA for making these papers possible.
12 December 2018: Click here to read ENN's latest report on the Current State of Evidence and Thinking on Wasting Prevention, a synthesis of published, grey literature and stakeholder opinion on what works to prevent wasting.
10 December 2018: The Global Nutrition Report 2018 has now been published and reveals that the global burden of malnutrition is unacceptably high and now affects every country in the world. It also highlights that if we act now it is not too late to end malnutrition in all its forms.
