SAHEL: After 30 years, nutrition strategy revamp at hand
"In Chad Action Against Hunger head Jean-François Carémel said interventions must encompass all these factors. 'The frustration is that the response is focused on curative actions. Acute malnutrition is indeed a medical pathology but it is also social, economic and cultural.'
'“The statistics justify urgent action but also the need for real in-depth, coordinated work on access to and quality of health care. Many approaches exist for preventing malnutrition, including improving food production and livestock breeding and boosting women’s status,' he said."
