In September, Maternal & Child Nutrition with support of the World Health Organization and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation launched a special issue focused on Promoting Health Growth and Preventing Childhood Stunting. In Multi-sectoral interventions for health growth, authors describe how factors linked with key sectors can contribute to healthy growth and reduced childhood stunting.
