[Perspectives] Ann Ashworth: pioneer in child nutrition

Ann Ashworth may have retired in 2005, but is still closely involved with work in the sphere in which she has made such a contribution over the past half century. She currently co-convenes an international malnutrition taskforce, which aims to build capacity to prevent and treat malnutrition and to highlight malnutrition as a major cause of child death. “Sub-Saharan Africa remains a major problem, but awareness has increased since the launch of the taskforce”, she says.
