Poverty, malnutrition, and poor child development are locked in a vicious cycle of poor health, lower learning capacity, diminished physical activity and lower work performance or productivity. As this cycle threatens health and survival, it simultaneously erodes the foundation of economic
growth - people’s strength and energy, creative and analytical capacity, initiative and entrepreneurial drive.

This document analyses risk such as mortality, morbidity, mental development and physical performance deficits in order to develop a scenario that describes the magnitude of national economic consequences from the malnutrition status quo in Albania.
