Nutritional deficiencies in low income countries impair the growth and development of children, reduce their resistance to infections, and contribute to almost half of all child deaths worldwide. Maternal malnutrition during pregnancy and lactation harms the fetus and infant with both short- and long-term consequences for their health. Future generations are also affected. The MRC International Nutrition Group (ING) works to reduce this burden with a focus on the world’s poorest populations, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.
