Early nutrition and health, social and demographic factors and welfare distributions have potential significant impact on childhood health and cognitive development. Malnutrition in childhood affects the future productivity of a society and it is an associated cause in about half of all deaths occurring among children in developing countries with severe malnutrition associated with 1 to 2 million preventable child deaths each year. Even children with moderate malnutrition had an increased risk of dying. According to the UNICEF, recent global estimates indicate that nearly 60 million children have a moderate form of malnutrition, and 13 million have a severe form of malnutrition. Thus, comprehensive research childhood malnutrition in developing countries would be an important international interest. Child nutritional status assessment not only serves as a means for evaluating the health condition and survival of children but also provides indirect measurements of a range of significant indicators in public health, socioeconomic developments and the quality of life of a population. It is necessary to highlight the widespread childhood malnutrition issues, risk factors and policy implications at national, regional and international levels since developed worlds are assisting on such issues through various aid programs. The purpose of this special issue is to explore research on childhood malnutrition in developing countries which covers all themes including level and trend of the prevalence of malnutrition, significant determinants, community and spatial factors, health education and social awareness, maternal health and nutrition, health and feeding practices, and welfare distributions and health policies etc to exchange and share new knowledge and policy ideas for dealing with malnutrition in public health at a multidisciplinary and international arenas.
