Starved for Attention: Background document on Malnutrition Campaign

“Starved for Attention”, MSF's malnutrition campaign is advocating for specific and targeted strategies to ensure children under two in malnutrition hotspots have access to the minimum nutrition they require. The campaign is calling on donor governments to change current food aid programmes to meet the nutritional needs of young children and develop approaches to providing food supplements. MSF is also highlighting the need for increased research and development into a range of supplemental foods adapted to young children's needs.
