Understanding the complex underlying causes of undernutrition in Bangladesh
Launched on 21 July 2014, a new film depicts the complex underlying causes of undernutrition through community stories in Bangladesh. The film was commissioned by UN REACH Bangladesh as part of their work to strengthen advocacy for scaling up nutrition.
Community activists and nutrition workers were trained in participatory video skills to capture stories from Satkhira District in south-west Bangladesh. The stories highlight the multidimensional context of undernutrition and show how, multi-sectoral collaborative responses, are required to address persisting challenges.
This timely launch follows the May 2014 release of A Common Narrative – a joint analysis and interpretation of the current nutrition situation in Bangladesh.
