Post a reply: New article on concurrent wasting and stunting

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Here is a new article on concurrent wasting and stunting (WaSt).

Key findings are:

(1) Prevalence of WaSt among under‐five children is the product of independent wasting and stunting plus an interaction term.

(2) Prevalence of WaSt peaks around age 18 months.

(3) Prevalence of WaSt is about 50% higher among boys than among girls before age 30 months (largely because their higher susceptibility to stunting) but not higher thereafter.

(4) Excess mortality associated with WaSt is the product of that associated with wasting and that associated with stunting.
