Abstract

There have been many recent advances in our understanding of the etiology, pathogenesis, mechanisms, and management of acute and chronic diarrheal disease. Many studies have investigated the role of diarrhea in producing or worsening malnutrition. However, the working group identified several areas of diarrhea-malnutrition interactions where current knowledge is incomplete or nonexistent.
