Current status + progress
Rather, energy is transferred between entities. Household demographic and socioeconomic status, Dietary intake of individuals and households Nutritional anthropometry on all the available members of the households, Village level information on population, agricultural production, nutrition and other developmental programmes. Generate data periodically on diet and nutritional status of socially vulnerable groups of population such as tribal communities living in the Integrated Tribal Development Agency ITDA areas, and special group of population 'at-risk' such as 'elderly' and 'adolescents, pregnant women, etc. The new standards are the result of an intensive study project involving more than 8, children from Brazil, Ghana, India, Norway, Oman and the United States. Country-level progress in reducing undernutrition prevalence is evaluated by calculating the average annual rate of reduction AARR and comparing this to the AARR needed in order to achieve targets.

When data collection begins in one calendar year and continues into the next, the survey year assigned is the one in which most of the fieldwork took place. For example, if a survey was conducted between 1 September and 28 February , the year would be assigned, since the majority of data collection took place in that year i.
This method has been used since the edition prior to that, the latter year was used by default — e. As of the edition, the country-level dataset used to generate the global and regional joint malnutrition estimates is based only on final survey results. Preliminary survey results are no longer included in the dataset since the data are sometimes retracted or change significantly when the final version is released.
Country-level progress in reducing undernutrition prevalence is evaluated by calculating the average annual rate of reduction AARR and comparing this to the AARR needed in order to achieve targets. Estimation of regional and global trends is based on a multilevel modelling method see de Onis et al.
For the most recent trend analysis, a total of data points from countries over the period to were included in the model. This set of trend data points was jointly reviewed by UNICEF, WHO and the World Bank Group in January to ensure that it is nationally representative of under-five children, processed using standard algorithms and comparable vertically and horizontally.
Global and regional trend modelling and graphing were carried out using SAS the country-level data set and analysis code are available on request. Each circle represents a prevalence estimate from a country for one survey. The size of the circle is proportional to the under-five population in that country for the average of all survey years. The solid line indicates the regional trend as modelled on all the available data points in the region. Explanation as to why trends are shown for stunting and overweight but only most current estimate for wasting and severe wasting: Prevalence estimates for stunting and overweight are relatively stable over the course of a calendar year.
It is therefore possible to track global and regional changes in these two conditions over time. Wasting and severe wasting are acute conditions that can change frequently and rapidly over the course of a calendar year. This makes it difficult to generate reliable trends over time with the input data available, and as such, this report provides only the most recent global and regional estimates for the JME edition. These data are collected infrequently every 3 to 5 years in most countries and measure malnutrition at one point in time e.
Footnotes on population coverage As started in the edition, a separate exercise was conducted to assess population coverage. This was important in order to alert the reader, via footnotes, to instances where the data should be interpreted with caution due to low population coverage defined as less than 50 per cent. A conservative method was applied looking at available data within mutually exclusive five-year periods around the projected years.
Population coverage was calculated as:. Prevalence thresholds for wasting, overweight and stunting in children under 5 years. Manuscript submitted for publication. Malnutrition rates remain alarming: Percentage of children under 5 who are stunted, In three regions, stunting affects one in every three children Percentage of children under 5 who are stunted, Percentage of children under 5 who are stunted, by region, to Globally, stunting declined from one in three to just under one in four between and Percentage of children under 5 who are stunted, by region, to Between and , the number of stunted children under 5 worldwide declined from million to million.
At the same time, numbers have increased at an alarming rate in West and Central Africa - from Number millions of children under 5 who are stunted, by region, and Percentage of children under 5 in millions who are overweight, by region, to The prevalence of overweight under-fives has increased significantly between and in Eastern Europe and Central Asia Percentage of children under 5 in millions who are overweight, by region, to Number of children under 5 in millions who are overweight, by region, to The number of overweight under-fives has increased significantly between and in Eastern Europe and Central Asia Number of children under 5 in millions who are overweight, by region, to The current era of health care delivery, with its focus on providing high-quality, affordable care, presents many challenges to hospital-based health professionals.
The prevention and treatment of hospital malnutrition offers a tremendous opportunity to optimize the overall quality of patient care, improve clinical outcomes, and reduce costs. Unfortunately, malnutrition continues to go unrecognized and untreated in many hospitalized patients.
This article represents a call to action from the interdisciplinary Alliance to Advance Patient Nutrition to highlight the critical role of nutrition intervention in clinical care and to suggest practical ways to promptly diagnose and treat malnourished patients and those at risk for malnutrition.
We underscore the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to addressing malnutrition both in the hospital and in the acute post-hospital phase. It is well recognized that malnutrition is associated with adverse clinical outcomes.
