Nutrition policies and programs in low- and middle-income countries: progress and challenges to achieving impact at scale, Chapter in Routledge Handbook of Food and Nutrition Security


Chapter 31 in Routledge Handbook of Food and Nutrition Security edited ByBill Pritchard, Rodomiro Ortiz, Meera Shekar

This chapter describes the recommendations and norms guiding current policies and programs to address undernutrition, the existence of policies and programs in low- and middle- income countries, some of their strengths and challenges, and provides examples of how better generation and use of information could accelerate progress in nutrition. It also includes discussion of policies and programs to address overweight and obesity in the context where undernutrition persists (the double burden). The goal is to provide a broad overview of the current state of programs and to also explore constraints and the critical factors that have led to success in some settings, and to discuss the implications of these for addressing malnutrition in the developing world.
