A Different Focus on Stunting

Is stunting the problem we need to solve, or the indicator of the problems we should be looking at? Jef Leroy, Senior Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), recently explained what stunting means and how the focus on it could cause confusion that can prevent us from solving global nutrition challenges.

This piece builds on work supported by A4NH, recently published in Advances in Nutrition. The work was further explained in a blog post first published on Devex.
