Chronic stunting throughout PNG

This question may seem funny but for PNG, where stunting is chronic throughout the country, it is an important one to really consider.

The root cause of this condition is malnutrition.

Malnutrition occurs when the body does not get enough nutrients. Causes include a poor diet or digestive conditions, among others.

Symptoms are fatigue, dizziness and weight loss. Untreated malnutrition can cause physical or mental disability.
