Integrate WASH and nutrition to prevent gut damage


NARRATOR: Did you know that
repeated gut infections can lead to malnutrition? The intestinal bugs that lurk
in the gut, or cause diarrhea, can also damage the
lining of the intestines, so your gut can’t absorb,
or digest nutrients, well. And pathogens can leak
through the lining, which triggers chronic, systemic
inflammation, which contributes to, and worsens, malnutrition. So integrating
WASH and nutrition can help children stay
healthy and grow strong. Learn more, and
join the movement.
