Given the importance of household income for child malnutrition, any decline in incomes resulting from COVID can be expected to increase the risk of malnutrition.

Malnutrition prevalence remains alarming: stunting is declining too slowly while wasting still impacts the lives of far too many young children Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to undernutrition; undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of.

Undernutrition in children, where an individual is not getting enough calories, protein, or micronutrients, is common globally and may result in both short and long term irreversible negative health outcomes.

COVID threatens maternal and child health, directly and indirectly. Pregnant women and mothers with young children are obviously vulnerable to COVID, and especially so if they have other underlying health conditions.

The word “syndrome” implies that there is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together and that serve to char-acterize the problem of malnutrition.

In this study, a hospital based cross-sectional study was carried to study the impact of malnutrition on children less than five years of age in Juba payam (District), Republic of South Sudan.

The results obtained indicated that 56% children were suffering from chronic malnutrition and 24% children were underweighted and 20% children were suffering from acute malnutrition. In infants who are under 6 months of age, severe acute malnutrition is defined by a very low weight-for-length or the presence of bilateral pitting oedema.

Severe acute malnutrition is increasingly being recognized in infants under 6 months of age and is often associated with higher mortality in young infants than in older infants and children. Family size was the most important determinant of diarrhoeal infection.
