Video: Childhood Malnutrition

New video from PIH!

"I don't think there will be large scale change without a movement, and this could be part of that movement...What if it was a coalition of parents around the world saying my kid's not dying, and your kid shouldn't die either?" -- Dr. Joia Mukherjee

In an interview by Two Degrees, Dr. Joia Mukherjee, PIH's Chief Medical Officer, discusses the tragedy of preventable childhood deaths from malnutrition and the importance of such campaigns in raising public awareness and empathy for childhood starvation. Two Degrees, a health food company, is a partner organization of PIH's that provides RUTF treatment for PIH patients in Malawi, based on our the model of programs built in Haiti.

Watch these short videos (link below) about childhood malnutrition and the importance of locally-sourced and produced RUTF in reversing it.
