Livestock, Sanitation, Hygiene, and Child Growth: Exploring the complex underlying causes of child stunting

A symposium exploring the underlying causes of stunting was held on March 1, 2018 at the University of Florida. The videos below show the opening remarks and three panels, and below the videos are the speakers' presentations.

The symposium was organized by the project CAGED (Campylobacter Genomics and Environmental Enteric Dysfunction), and it was was co-hosted by the university's Center for African Studies, and the Institute for Sustainable Food Systems. The CAGED project aims to test whether linear growth of young children will increase more when an intervention to improve young child growth (through increased egg intake and basic nutrition and WASH training) is combined with an intervention to improve gut health by reducing exposure to chicken excreta.
