SIGHT AND LIFE (SAL): Con – gratulations on the second edition of Nutrition and Health in Devel- op ing Countries. What major nutri- tion and health issues does this book address, and what key in – sights does it offer the reader? Richard D. Semba (RDS): Nine million children under age five die in this world each year. The vast majority of these deaths could be prevented with better nutrition and sanitation, and more extensive implementation of known effective interventions to improve child sur-vival. Our book takes an integrated approach to micronutrient malnutrition and the infectious diseases that account for high child mortali- ty. We hope that readers will gain a firm grasp of the pathophysiology, clinical features, and the causes of malnutrition from the level of the individual to that of the household, the village, and society as a whole. The book also outlines how malnu- trition and infectious diseases inter- act to increase the risk of morbidi- ty and mortality. We additionally discuss issues that are relevant to food security and food policy.
