Kenya: Vaccines, Vitamins and Vegetables - On Nutrition Fight Frontlines
"Dr. Sandra Mutuma is senior nutrition advisor to Action Against Hunger U.K. and lead author of a report on nutrition presented last month at Westminster, home of Britain's Parliament, by Action Against Hunger and IDS. She says only about 1 percent of the funds needed to effectively address undernutrition are currently being spent. That may be changing, with both individual African governments and international donors showing new resolution to tackle the problem. Nutrition researchers have become advocates, arguing for relatively low-cost actions, such as breastfeeding counseling and vitamin and mineral supplementation for children under two."
