Summary: 

Chronic malnutrition reduces the physical and mental development of children.  It is a scourge of humanity which still rages despite the evidence that reducing hunger and malnutrition leads to rapid economic growth. Marcela Mayorga and Karla Somarriba, members of the Programme Team collect blood samples of children in rural areas to analyse their nutritional status and assist national authorities in response actions.
