Our message: children need to be supported to ?#?SurviveANDThrive

Thanks to Dr Natasha Lelijveld, lead researcher, all co-authors, study team, study collaborators, Malawi-Liverpool Wellcome Trust and Paeds Dept, College of Medicine Malawi for hosting the project, Wellcome Trust for funding the research. And biggest thanks of course to the children and families who took part.

The challenges are clear...next step...developing and testing the interventions to move things forward for future generations..

With very best wishes,
