Maternal and child undernutrition: global and regional exposures and health consequences
TLDR
The high mortality and disease burden resulting from these nutrition-related factors make a compelling case for the urgent implementation of interventions to reduce their occurrence or ameliorate their consequences. Expand
Maternal and child undernutrition and overweight in low-income and middle-income countries
TLDR
It is estimated that undernutrition in the aggregate--including fetal growth restriction, stunting, wasting, and deficiencies of vitamin A and zinc along with suboptimum breastfeeding--is a cause of 3·1 million child deaths annually or 45% of all child deaths in 2011. Expand
Global, regional, and national causes of child mortality in 2008: a systematic analysis
TLDR
New estimates for 2008 of the major causes of death in children younger than 5 years in 193 countries are reported to help to focus national programmes and donor assistance. Expand
Where and why are 10 million children dying every year?
TLDR
The importance of undernutrition as an underlying cause of child deaths associated with infectious diseases, the effects of multiple concurrent illnesses, and recognition that pneumonia and diarrhoea remain the diseases that are most often associated with child deaths are highlighted. Expand
Global burden of childhood pneumonia and diarrhoea
TLDR
The epidemiology of childhood diarrhoea and that of pneumonia overlap, which might be partly because of shared risk factors, such as undernutrition, suboptimum breastfeeding, and zinc deficiency, and action is needed globally and at country level to accelerate the reduction. Expand
Global, regional, and national causes of child mortality in 2000–13, with projections to inform post-2015 priorities: an updated systematic analysis
TLDR
The authors' projection results provide concrete examples of how the distribution of child causes of deaths could look in 15-20 years to inform priority setting in the post-2015 era. Expand
What works? Interventions for maternal and child undernutrition and survival
TLDR
To eliminate stunting in the longer term, existing interventions that were designed to improve nutrition and prevent related disease could reduce stunting at 36 months by 36%; mortality between birth and 36 monthsBy about 25%; and disability-adjusted life-years associated with stunting, severe wasting, intrauterine growth restriction, and micronutrient deficiencies by about 25%.

WHO estimates of the causes of death in children
TLDR
A 4-year effort by WHO to improve the accuracy of estimates of the proportion of deaths in children younger than age 5 years attributable to pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles, and the major causes of death in the first 28 days of life is reported on. Expand
Global, regional, and national causes of child mortality: an updated systematic analysis for 2010 with time trends since 2000
TLDR
The latest estimates of causes of child mortality in 2010 with time trends since 2000 show that only tetanus, measles, AIDS, and malaria (in Africa) decreased at an annual rate sufficient to attain the Millennium Development Goal 4. Expand
Experimental Campylobacter jejuni infection in humans.
TLDR
Two strains of Campylobacter jejuni ingested by 111 adult volunteers, in doses ranging from 8 x 10(2) to 2x 10(9) organisms, caused diarrheal illnesses that indicates that the pathogenesis of C.Jejuni infection includes tissue inflammation. Expand
