Boys and girls nourishing themselves to avoid child malnutrition

Course in child malnutrition. 7 reasons to specialize

Childhood malnutrition is a heartbreaking problem that affects millions of children (and not so children). Sitting idly is not an option. Although we do not have the solution to world hunger, we can try to address one of its greatest consequences in the best way possible, the desnutrition.
In search of concrete solutions to this global challenge, and given the gap observed in the nutritional sphere in Development Cooperation, the need arises for specialized education through courses on malnutrition. Health professionals better trained in malnutrition will carry out actions with greater impact.

Empower yourself to be part of the solution!

What role does the State and International Cooperation have in child malnutrition?

The governments of each country and Development Cooperation play a crucial role in the fight against child malnutrition. However, today, although malnutrition is present in the political agendas (in some countries more than others...), I consider that is not focused as a high priority issue. And it is.

Despite advances in recent decades, food insecurity, hunger and malnutrition continue to be the reality of many families, especially in disadvantaged regions (although not exclusively in these). Everything is related in the development of a country. Boys and girls who experience delays in linear and intellectual growth for long periods perform less in school (if they are able to attend) and, consequently, become adults with lower potential at different levels. Thus, all public policies should always have health and nutrition as a central point. Long-term, a country whose people are malnourished will not make good progress in any other area.

We must continue creating strategic alliances between governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, associations and citizens to implement comprehensive programs and effective public policies around malnutrition. And not only implement new programs and policies but also evaluate existing ones to improve them.Alliances to eradicate hunger and malnutrition

How to approach the fight against child malnutrition?

It is important to go to the root of the problem. Initiatives to prevent and address malnutrition should not just focus on providing food (patches never work) but go beyond. Face all the socio-nutritional sphere, that is, everything that surrounds hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. Address the environment and people's livelihoods, in other words, the social determinants of their health.

The basic premises are to promote the availability and access to food, promote healthy eating practices, improve drinking water infrastructure, facilitate access to health centers, etc., that is, influence the immediate, underlying and structural/basic causes of malnutrition.

Let's work together towards sustainable solutions that promote self-sufficiencyand equity. Let's fight for a future fair where no one has to suffer the devastating consequences of malnutrition. To be honest, none of us want to see sad and malnourished children. Quite the opposite, I guess we want to see that every child has the opportunity to grow and live happy and healthy.
