Chronic Malnutrition Index – Colombia

Mon, 10 Jul, 2023

Good practices help us all to reflect on our nutrition journey, document our progress and capture our lessons learned – including challenges and successes – that we can learn from and that we can share with others to strengthen all of our SUN Country nutrition action.

Read this action brief from Colombia about how they use the Chronic Malnutrition Index to identify the determinants of chronic malnutrition. This tool is being used to provide an indicator on the territorial risk of malnutrition in early childhood in the country, as there are no updated official measurements.
