Food is Not Enough, MSF's new malnutrition campaign is advocating for a global scale-up of therapeutic ready-to-use food (RUF) for the most at risk children and further efforts to use supplemental RUF to prevent children from becoming dangerously malnourished in the first place. MSF is also highlighting the need for increased research and development into a range of therapeutic products.
"Unfortunately, sometimes, the problem of malnutrition gets hidden under the big discussions on eliminating poverty or eliminating hunger, but medical science is not in a position to say any better than anyone else how to go about eliminating hunger. What we do know is how to control malnutrition."
Dr Milton Tectonidis, MSF nutrition advisor
