The nutrition is an important part of global health matters. The malnutrition can dangerously impact on the individual general health situation. It is why, we frequently address the problems of nutrition in our publishing to help understanding the power of every individual’s commitment to fighting hunger in our communities.
All things considered; we are passionately interested in the discussion about funding either Under-nutrition or Over-nutrition. We know that both concepts are some types of malnutrition. We reported that: Even though over-nutrition is a real health problem, we are convinced that developed countries are well managed that situation. They have more money to take care of over-nutrition problems. About under-nutrition, UNICEF (2006) said: “When individuals are undernourished, they can no longer maintain natural bodily capacities, such as growth, resisting infections and recovering from disease, learning and physical work, and pregnancy and lactation in women. Poor feeding of infants and young children, especially the lack of optimal breastfeeding and responsive complementary feeding, along with such illness as diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria and HIV/AIDS, often exacerbated by helminths are the causes of under-nutrition. The second target of MDG 1 is to reduce the proportion of people who suffer from hunger by half between 1990 and 2015.” We also said that: We would allocate the fund to under-nutrition sector because we strongly believed that there are more problems at that level; but also, undernourished people are more likely in needs than over-nourished people in developed countries.
FOOD FOR ALL strongly agreed with Skolnik when he said: “It is also essential to understand the links among health, education, development, poverty, and equity. Building on the previous concepts, those interested in global health also need to have an understanding of how key health issues affect different parts of the world and the world as a whole. These include:
Environmental health
Nutrition
Reproductive health
Child health
Infectious disease
Non-Communicable disease
Injuries
Finally, it is important to understand global health issues that are generally addressed through cooperation. Some of these concern conflicts, natural disasters, and humanitarian emergencies. Others relate to the mechanisms by which different actors in global health activities work together to solve global health problems.” All those problems can negatively impact on the person’s nutritional situation.
In developing countries, the nutrition problems must be addressed as a whole; not as a part. Therefore, they must consider the global situations of the countries. As aforementioned, those will include the political, economic and social situations of those countries since political, economic, and social crises are among the causes of the malnutrition.
FOOD FOR ALL helps to feed for hope.
