COVID-19 Series: Nutrition
This rapid literature review on nutrition is part of a COVID-19 series of publications from Maintains.
The COVID-19 pandemic will cause the already significant numbers of people who do not have enough to eat to rise, with predictions that some 265 million people could be pushed into acute food insecurity, while disruptions to health and nutrition services will cause a rise in the global prevalence of malnutrition. This rapid literature review explores strategies to address the short and longer term impacts of malnutrition caused by the pandemic.
