Public Health in Pictures: Nutrition in Dhaka, Bangladesh (National Geographic)

Standard

Nutrition makes a big difference to tiny patients at a research hospital in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Admitted with diarrhea, all weighed 50 percent below the norm for their age. Two recent arrivals are still scrawny, but the baby on the right is ready to go home after three weeks of eating locally available, calorie-rich foods. Without such intervention many severely malnourished children succumb to disease.
