Maternal and Child Under nutrition is responsible for more than one third of the deaths of children under five . The main causes of malnutrition are deficiencies in child caring and poor feeding practices. The status of nutrition becomes worse at the youth age. Lack of basic health access, inability to clinical tests, malnutrition causing anaemia among pregnant mothers, insufficient referral service cause maternal child deaths.
