@SamAdvocacy There is a multi sectorial approach to this. As it has a lot to do with politics and the economy as it does with health.
The government has a lot to do in fixing the economy to reduce the poverty rate.

@SamAdvocacy 6B: Cos with poverty comes hunger, ignorance and poor health choices which ultimately lead to disease including malnutrition.
#MalnutritionAndYou #FundChildNutrition
@SamAdvocacy 6C: Also Nutritional health education is very key. So people are more aware of the true concept of eating and eating right. And become more intentional about the quality (content) of their meals rather than just the quantity.

@SamAdvocacy 6D: Early presentation to hospitals is another thing, Cos the child doesn’t transform overnight. We people have a bad habit of late presentation to the hospital, again poverty and ignorance comes to play here. Cos with early presentation...

@SamAdvocacy 6E:
Cos with early presentation, the patient is better managed and has a higher chance of a good outcome.
And Ofcourse, not all malnutrition is treated with food (atleast in isolation), some could be due to an underlying disease. 👇🏽

@SamAdvocacy 6F:
Drs have to of course stabilize, then diagnose the underlying cause of the malnutrition and treat accordingly. This can only be done when they present to the hospital and early, again buttressing the need for Public health education
