More than half of all deaths in children less than three years have malnutrition as the underlying cause. These children would have recovered from common child diseases if they had not been malnourished, but because they are malnourished they die.

Management of severe acute malnutrition focuses on reducing mortality while management of moderate acute malnutrition focuses on preventing mortality by reducing further deterioration of nutritional status.
