Abstract
Although much attention centres on Afghanistan's political and security transitions, malnutrition is a foremost concern. Because an absence of adequate nutrition has crucial long-term effects on individuals and on social and economic development, nutrition rates in Afghanistan deserve attention and action, especially during this time of transition. A national survey from Afghanistan's Ministry of Public Health, UNICEF, and Aga Khan University provides the first update in 10 years on the nutritional status of women, children, adolescents, and elderly people in Afghanistan.
