Professor Anthony Costello (Institute of Child Health)

In many poor countries the Millennium Development Goals for improvements in nutrition and health, especially of mothers and children, will not be met by the target date of 2015.  This talk will review progress towards these targets and consider critical obstacles to success.  New strategies will be considered to improve nutrition and to accelerate reductions in death and fertility rates so that the global population will be stabilised by mid-century.
