Living a healthy life is one of the basic human right. Children and mothers dying from malnutrition in a world with plenty of resources is absolutely inhuman. Therefore bringing improvement in the nutrition of children and women is a noble social service.
Today that we have the knowledge and also the means to address this menace we are and we will do all we can to ensure we are not unjust to our own women and children. In this regard, I do sincerely acknowledge the financial support of the government of Balochistan in scaling up the nutrition interventions in the province.
I would also like to acknowledge and thank the donors and development partners (World Bank, UNICEF, WHO & WFP) for the remarkable efforts in bringing nutrition in the main stream agenda, both at the national as well as at the international level and for all the financial and technical support. With all the resources, capacities and evidence based interventions at hand it is high time for the government, international community, civil society and others to take action on a problem we know how to solve.
