Transdisciplinary cooperation for addressing the complexities of nutrition and population health in LMICs

Research output: Non-textual formWebsite, Blog, Social Media

Abstract

The context of public health and nutrition in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) differs significantly from the social, economic, cultural and political environment in high-income countries where it has become the basic standard of life. Poor diets and undernutrition are major contributory risk factors for ill health and premature death; today’s world is facing the double burden of both under and over nutrition. While most of the high-income countries are suffering from over-nutrition related issues, undernutrition remains a significant public health threat in many LMICs, with almost half of all deaths in children under 5 years in LMICs attributable to poor nutrition.
