Vitamins and minerals are vital in a child=B4s diet to boost immunity and healthy development. Too often, young children=B4s health and immunity are threatened by malnutrition and infections, creating a vicious cycle of infection exacerbating malnourishment. Although an infectious disease is often listed as the cause of death, malnutrition plays a crucial role in more than half of the 10.6 million annual deaths of children under five.
Great strides have been made in our understanding of nutritional interventions that can contribute to the prevention and treatment of infections.
by Director General Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei
Science and technology are driving forces for human progress, and play key roles in development. When development needs remain unaddressed, the resulting misery often leads to conflicts and violence, which in turn further affect development efforts and impact on regional and global stability.
But even with globalization, many developing countries still receive scant benefit from recent advances in science and technology. This is because investment in science and technology normally follows the marketplace.
