MPUMALANGA

At the underlying level, nutrition equity is caused by the way that people’s everyday social, psychological/behavioural and material circumstances interact with their wider environments. These environments include: access to adequate and quality food; provision for infant care; healthcare environments; and wider living environments (including sanitation and opportunities for physical activity). Operation Hunger has put together the latest data using the conceptual framework consistent with the determinants of undernutrition and prevalence of malnutrition to comprehensively elucidate barriers and opportunities leading to unhealthy nutrition outcomes.
