David Gordon, MD, MPH: Psychosocial development in children with severe acute malnutrition

Malnutrition, particularly in the first 1000 days of life, is associated increased vulnerability to infection and compromised development. In this same period of life, inadequate psychosocial stimulation inhibits developmental potential. Malnutrition combined with psychosocial deprivation can have considerable implications on child development.
