Content

This unit provides an overview of the epidemiology of the major nutrition-related diseases in developed and developing countries. Topics covered include: the double-burden of nutrition-related disease, the international agreements affecting food production, distribution and trade and domestic food supplies, food security with an emphasis on causal factors, national policy and program interventions addressing famine and under-nutrition and the nutrition transition resulting from changing food consumption and physical activity patterns. Inadequate nutrition is examined from cultural, biological, economic, social and political perspectives. Practical skills in the design, implementation and evaluation of nutrition policies and program interventions addressing both under- and over-nutrition in developing countries are provided.
