Implementing Interventions to Deliver Nutrition

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Malnutrition is still widespread in many countries, although we have the scientific knowledge about biological interventions to deal with all the major deficiency diseases. The validity of this biological knowledge has been verified in both laboratory and clinical settings. Moreover, the application of this knowledge in community-based trials around the world has established the validity of the biological translation to individuals in populations who suffer from deficiencies. What is missing is the knowledge about how to deliver these biological interventions to the large numbers of people (especially women, children and the elderly) who need them most. Implicit in this statement is the belief that reaching all the individuals who suffer from the effects of nutritional deficiencies is not only a matter of economic resources and political will. Although insufficient resources play an important role in inadequate implementation of interventions, there is also extensive and serious lack of knowledge about how to do it. Beyond curing deficiencies, prevention is even more important, and this is the ultimate goal.
