Botswana - Nutrition at a glance (English)

Over one-third of child deaths are due to undernutrition, mostly from increased severity of disease. Children who are undernourished between conception and age two are at high risk for impaired cognitive development, which adversely affects the country's productivity and growth. The Japan Trust Fund for scaling-up nutrition is expected to finance the development of recommendations and best practices for infant feeding practices in the context of high HIV/AIDs.
