WaSt TIG papers 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.
