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
Health professionals for a new century: transforming education to strengthen health systems in an interdependent world
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the physical and emotional impacts of infectious disease on a variety of patients over a period of years. Expand
Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013
TLDR
The global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980-2013 is estimated using a spatiotemporal Gaussian process regression model to estimate prevalence with 95% uncertainty intervals (UIs). 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
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%. Expand
Evidence-based interventions for improvement of maternal and child nutrition: what can be done and at what cost?
TLDR
Improved access for nutrition-sensitive approaches can greatly accelerate progress in countries with the highest burden of maternal and child undernutrition and mortality, if this improved access is linked to nutrition- sensitive approaches. Expand
How many child deaths can we prevent this year?
TLDR
The findings show that the interventions needed to achieve the millennium development goal of reducing child mortality by two-thirds by 2015 are available, but that they are not being delivered to the mothers and children who need them. Expand
Global, regional, and national trends in haemoglobin concentration and prevalence of total and severe anaemia in children and pregnant and non-pregnant women for 1995–2011: a systematic analysis of
TLDR
Children's and women's haemoglobin statuses improved in some regions where concentrations had been low in the 1990s, leading to a modest global increase in mean haemochemistry and a reduction in anaemia prevalence between 1995 and 2011. Expand
Achieving child survival goals: potential contribution of community health workers
TLDR
The introduction of large-scale programmes for community health workers requires evaluation to document the impact on child survival and cost effectiveness and to elucidate factors associated with success and sustainability. Expand
