The Civil Society Scaling up Nutrition CSO-SUN has called on government to ensure the fight against malnutrition in the country is not neglected, during this time when the country is fighting Covid19.

CSO-SUN Country Coordinator Mathews Mhuru says government should ensure that all forms of malnutrition are dealt with in all vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly especially in the rural parts of the country.

Speaking in an interview with Christian Voice News in Lusaka, Mr. Mhuru said vulnerable groups must be protected through the provision of information and that government should take proactive action to ensure citizens are protected from other health implications that may arise due to poor nutrition.
