Trends in mild, moderate, and severe stunting and underweight, and progress towards MDG 1 in 141 developing countries

A systematic analysis of population representative data. Macroeconomic shocks, structural adjustment, and trade policy reforms in the 1980s and 1990s might have been responsible for worsening child nutritional status in sub-Saharan Africa. Further progress in the improvement of children's growth and nutrition needs equitable economic growth and investment in pro-poor food and primary care programmes, especially relevant in the context of the global economic crisis.
