Wasted and stunted

Editor's choice

Children who are both wasted and stunted are also underweight and have a high risk of death: a descriptive epidemiology of multiple anthropometric deficits using data from 51 countries

Wasting and stunting are implicated in the deaths of almost two million children each year and account for over 12% of disability-adjusted life years lost in young children. This study by Myatt et al. analysed data from a series of cross-sectional survey datasets in order to determine the association between being wasted and being stunted.
