Following detailed analyses of causes and consequences, Gillespie and Haddad provide clear evidence-based options for remedial action in differing contexts, all based on the use of a practical approach to conceptualising risks and opportunities through the lifecycle

Following detailed analyses of causes and consequences, Gillespie and Haddad provide clear evidence-based options for remedial action in differing contexts, all based on the use of a practical approach to conceptualising risks and opportunities through the lifecycle. Taken together, the evidence and experience presented by the authors constitute a powerful weapon in the battle against malnutrition, and one that is relevant for a wide range of actors and institutions both in Asia and beyond.

amp; Haddad, Lawrence James. The double burden of malnutrition in Asia : causes, consequences, and solutions. This book is the first comprehensive assessment of nutrition in Asia, a region that has the largest concentration of global malnutrition. This book describes the main driving forces behind the groundswell of under nutrition.

The symposium aims to identify double-duty actions that address both sides of malnutrition . Interventions - From biology to interventions targeting the DBM.

The symposium aims to identify double-duty actions that address both sides of malnutrition through common interventions. Furthermore, new assessment tools regarding the role of stable isotopes in the measurement of malnutrition and in assessing the impact of interventions will be addressed. Epidemiology - Prevalence, causes and consequences of the DBM. Biology - Biological mechanisms contributing to the DBM. Assessment - How to assess the DBM in individuals and populations. Policy implications - From biology to policies addressing the DBM. Audience.

The double burden of malnutrition is defined by the co-existence of serious levels of under- and overnutrition. 1 Nowhere have overweight rates risen as fast as in the regions of South East Asia and the Pacific. The regions are also burdened with high and often stagnant levels of undernutrition.

The greatest number of malnourished children in the world reside in Asia. The Double Burden of Malnutrition in Asia is inspired by the massive challenge that this situation currently poses for Asia. It describes the main driving forces behind the groundswell of undernutrition, while shedding light on the emerging ‘double burden’ of co-existing underweight and overweight, and the linkages between these two different forms of malnutrition. Following detailed analyses of causes and consequences, Gillespie and Haddad provide clear evidence-based options for remedial action in differing contexts, all based on the use of a practical approach to conceptualising risks and opportunities through the lifecycle. Taken together, the evidence and experience presented by the authors constitute a powerful weapon in the battle against malnutrition, and one that is relevant for a wide range of actors and institutions both in Asia and beyond.
