Seasonal undernutrition in rural Ethiopia: magnitude, correlates, and functional significance
Ferro-Luzzi, Anna et al.
Seasonal variability of both production and consumption is characteristic of virtually all farming systems in the developing world. Seasonal variations in food security are linked to many other structural and economic problems which exist in Ethiopia, which is periodically afflicted with famines. The widespread mortality and disease that accompany these famines are well known and understood, but less is known about the effects of seasonal energy stress in the "normal" years in between. It is crucial to understand the effects of seasonal energy stress.
