Undernutrition is more than just a health problem
How then do we politicise undernutrition so that it gets the attention – and solutions – it deserves? It is still a major global problem: about 30% of all infants in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa are stunted.
I was recently at a Care and Action Against Hunger event that featured two success stories on the politicisation of nutrition, from Brazil and Peru. The case of Brazil is quite well known, with presidents Cardoso and Lula da Silva both making food security a high priority for their governments.
