The UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia decided in 1996 to invite several academics and practitioners from the region to contribute state-of-the art reviews of various aspects of the malnutrition problem in South Asia. Terms of reference were broadly divided into three parts: A regional description of the nature, causes and consquences of the particular problem area, drawing on recent data, and explaining why the problem is particularly important for South Asia, a summary of the main approaches being taken to address the problem in the region--strategies, policies, programmes--and what is know about their effectiveness, next steps or key action priorities to be pursued in the remaining years of the decade and beyond.
