This is a synthesis of a regional study, Reducing Child Malnutrition in Eight Asian Countries, by ADB and the UNICEF that posits improved nutrition can increase the size, improve the health, and raise the performance of children in school and later in life.

This publication provides a comprehensive analysis of the nutrition of Asian children, describes successful community programs backed by partnerships of government and the private sector, and estimates the resources needed to reach the goals of the World Summit for Children and the high and preventable costs of not doing so.
