Dear Readers,

Greetings on behalf of BCSNPN!! The world we survive is full of issues and terrible problems; still we wake up every day with new hope index to improve this fine-looking world and life- especially for malnourished mothers and children. You know Bangladesh has experienced some remarkable changes over the last few decades with improvements in health, education and economy.However, malnutrition in mothers and children continues to impose a staggering cost to Bangladesh. Malnutrition rates still seem to be the highest among the South Asian countries.Still almost half of the children and a quarter of mothers are suffering from malnutrition. From our past achievements and future choices, we must first understand the causes of malnutrition and identify the most important causes before we act upon those areas of intervention for the most successful outcome in reducing malnutrition.
