Malnutrition in young children of rural Burkina Faso: comparison of survey data from 1999 with 2009

Tropical Medicine & International Health, 05/08/2012

Progress in the reduction of malnutrition remains slow on this continent making it rather unlikely that the corresponding Millennium Development Goal will be achieved. Large–scale multi–sectoral community–based interventions are urgently needed for a sustainable improvement of child health in SSA.
