UNICEF: The State of the World's Children 1998

The State of the World’s Children 1998: Nutrition details the scale of malnutrition and the steps being taken to stem it. It argues that malnutrition is largely a silent and invisible emergency, exacting a terrible toll on children and their families. The result of multiple causes, including a lack of food, common and preventable infections, inadequate care and unsafe water, it plays a role in more than half of the nearly 12 million deaths each year of children under five. Malnutrition blunts intellects and saps the productivity and potential of entire societies. Poverty, one of the causes of malnutrition, is also a consequence, a tragic bequest by malnourished parents to the next generation. Building on both the experience gained and the scientific knowledge achieved, the report recalls the world’s obligation to protect children’s right to adequate nutrition and suggests that action is both possible and imperative.
