The Labour Studies Seminar Series presents a lecture by Michael Rogan entitled “Starving amidst Plenty: Survey Evidence on Child Stunting in South Africa”.
South Africa is one of only a handful of countries in which the prevalence of child stunting has increased over the period during which progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has been monitored.
One explanation for this reversal is that Big Food retail chains and food prices have been contributing to a low quality diet across the country, particularly in poor urban households.
