Positive Deviance in Child Nutrition

Marian Zeitlin, Hossein Ghassemi, and Mohamed Mansour, United Nations University


Complementary to the UNU-UNICEF Research on the Evaluation of Programmes of Nutrition and Primary Health Care at the Household Level, the research summarized in this volume was commissioned by the WHO-UNICEF Joint Nutrition Support Programmes financed by the Government of Italy. It examines the performance of mothers who were successful in maintaining their children's and family's nutrition and health under conditions of poverty in which most were failing to do so.
