Can Mapping Nutrition Assistance Help Uganda Solve Its Malnutrition Problem?

Today, one out of every three children in Uganda is stunted, a key indicator of chronic malnutrition. Beyond the negative consequences for these children and their families, malnutrition is costing Uganda $899 million USD annually, according to a recent Cost of Hunger in Africa (COHA) study. When I attended the Uganda COHA launch event in Kampala, I was impressed by the diversity of stakeholders represented and the fact that malnutrition requires a multi-sector solution.
