The world has known about the double burden of malnutrition for a long time. The question now is: what do we do about it? And how? On the ‘what,’ there is no shortage of solutions to the various manifestations of malnutrition, whether it’s about treating children who are underweight for their age or not growing properly, tackling micronutrient deficiency and underweight among adults, or addressing obesity and other diseases and conditions associated with eating an unhealthy diet. Globally and nation- ally, there is increasing recognition of the need to address the different forms. The Sustainable Development Goals call for an end of malnutrition in all its forms. At a national level, 84% of countries are now reported to have targets for adult overweight and obesity alongside targets for undernutrition (e.g., 58% of countries have targets for stunting).1 More countries have developed action plans designed to address the double burden. Tanzania’s National Multisectoral Nutrition Action Plan (2016–21), for example, is designed to do “double action” to “address both undernutrition and the prevention and control of the burden of diet-related noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as over- weight and obesity.”
