Nutritional Epidemiology & Malnutrition

Malnutrition is a significant global health concern, particularly in children under five years of age and pregnant women. Malnutrition, though uncommon in developed countries, continues to be a major health burden in developing countries. Malnutrition, consisting of protein-energy malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, is globally the most important risk factor for morbidity and mortality. Particularly, hundreds of millions of pregnant women and young children are affected by malnutrition.In the past decade, discourse about the challenge of malnutrition has increased substantially at both national and international levels. Several studies across many diagnostic groups have documented energy, protein and micronutrient intake, particularly, iron and calcium to be insufficient to meet the nutritional requirements. Malnutrition is particularly a problem in institutionalized patients. Studies have shown that between 30 and 60% of hospital food is not consumed, sometimes because of catering practices do not meet the needs of the sick elderly.
