About this book


This third edition reviews the epidemiology, policies, programs and outcome indicators that are important and should go together to improve nutrition and health in low-middle income settings (i.e. a developing world). This greatly expanded third edition provides policy makers, program managers, students and scientists in the area of public health and nutrition with the most recent and up-to-date knowledge regarding major health and nutritional problems in low-middle income settings. Experience with policies and programs that address both the biomedical as well as the social and economic determinants of nutrition and health as a way to improve the health and nutrition situation, and hence the development, of the most vulnerable people in the world, is increasing. This volume provides the most current overview of research and strategies so that policy makers, program managers, academics and students have knowledge and resources that they can use to advance the public’s health and the development of nations to meet the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  The third edition of Nutrition and Health in a Developing World takes on a new context where the word “developing” is now a verb and not an adjective.
