The day-to-day purpose of the project here is to heal kids like George of their severe acute malnutrition, so that they avoid stunting or, worse, death, and you could no more quantify this benefit than you could put a price on a human life. But MSF is here with an additional, even more ambitious goal: if we can help kids like George with a model of community based nutritional care tailor-made specifically for the Bihar State, India setting, then we might just be able to convince the government to adopt this model of care, scale it up and then help every sick kid like George.
MSF doctor, Luke Chapman, on his work with malnutrition in Bihar state, India. Please leave your questions and comments for Luke in the box below his blog post.
