The early years

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The relationship between undernutrition and morbidity is complex as illness often results in undernutrition which, in turn, increase susceptibility to infectious disease. Childer living in resource-poor areas are thus often caught in a vicious cycle of poor nutrition and infectious disease. Four of the eight Millennium Development Goals highlight the importance of adequate nutrition for human health and development. The IAEA is assisting Member States in their efforts to achieve these goals by providing technical support for strategies to combat undernutrition.
