UNICEF’s 2009 report Tracking Progress on Child and Maternal Nutrition drew attention to the impact of high levels of undernutrition on child survival, growth and development and their social and economic toll on nations. It described the state of nutrition programmes worldwide and argued for improving and expanding delivery of key nutrition interventions during the critical 1,000-day window …

With 165 million children suffering from chronic undernutrition (being stunted) and 52 million suffering from acute malnutrition (being wasted) (UNICEF et al., 2012), more concerted and cross-sectoral Action is needed. Improving water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in the context of nutrition programming offers one important opportunity to do this. A recent systematic review of 14 studies on WASH …

Spears, D., Haddad, L. (2015)
Water, sanitation, and hygiene can have a profound effect on health and nutrition. A growing base of evidence on the link between sanitation, child height, and well-being has come at an opportune time, when the issue of sanitation and nutrition in developing countries has moved to the top of the post-2015 development agenda.

Fewtrell, L. et al. (2005)
Many studies have reported the results of interventions to reduce illness through improvements in drinking water,
sanitation facilities, and hygiene practices in less developed countries. There has, however, been no formal systematic review and meta-analysis comparing the evidence of the relative effectiveness of these interventions. A comprehensive search strategy designed to identify all …
WASHplus Project (2013)
Unsafe water was considered the primary cause of diarrhea in children transitioning from an exclusive breastfeeding diet, but recent evidence also points to unsafe food. The brochure highlights some WASH interventions that can prevent diarrhea and undernutrition even in hygiene-challenged environments.
Concern Worldwide (2014)
This paper aims to provide some practical guidance on how water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programmes can be more nutrition-sensitive and how nutrition programmes can incorporate more WASH aspects. It should be useful for all project staff working in nutrition and WASH programmes when WASH and/or a nutrition programme are in operation.
The Lancet (2013)
Maternal and child undernutrition was the subject of a Series of papers in The Lancet in 2008. Five years after the initial series, the problems of maternal and child undernutrition were re-evaluated.
Departement Technique Action contre la FAIM-Fr (2007)
The article examines how the factors malnutrition, water sanitation and hygiene and infections interact and draws conclusions for future work on tackling the issues
Schmidt, C. W. (2014)
Researchers are exploring the possibility that poor hygiene and a lack of sanitation induce a gut disorder called environmental enteropathy (EE) that diverts energy from growth toward an ongoing fight against subclinical infection. Nutritionists are now collaborating with experts in a field known as water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), and their combined efforts are helping to galvanize …

Chambers, R., von Medeazza, G. (2014)
The dominant nutrition discourse concerns access to adequate food and its quality. It now includes food security, food rights and justice, governance and agriculture. Despite many initiatives to assure food access, and growing economies, high levels of undernutrition persist in much of Asia. It is increasingly suggested that much of this ‘Asian enigma’ can now be explained by open defecation …
Pahlenberg, L., Weimann-Koinzack, C. (2015)
In recent years, there has been growing scientifc evidence implying a close link between the lack of WASH and stunting.
Stunting, which means low height for age can be a marker of a whole range of developmental setbacks of children including cognitive impairment.
Scaling Up Nutrition (2010)
The purpose of the policy brief is to provide an outline of the emerging framework of key considerations, principles and priorities for action to address undernutrition and to mobilize support for increased investment in a set of nutrition interventions across different sectors. Thus, the intended audience is principally policymakers and opinion leaders, rather than nutrition specialists.
