Needless child deaths might be prevented through holistic programs for the first 1,000 days
I recently came across Rani, nine-months-old, at a district malnutrition treatment centre. Barely 3kg, she was suffering from acute malnutrition. Her distraught parents cried, not understanding why their daughter had reached this state. The answer was not obvious. Did Rani experience a draining illness? Was she not breastfed properly? Was the complementary feeding inadequate? Was Rani born at a low-birth weight, and if so why?
