Abstract

Vella V (AF6PH, The World Bank, 1818 H Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20433, USA), Tomkins A, Borghesi A, Migliori G B and Oryem V Y. Déterminants of stunting and recovery from stunting in Northwest Uganda. International Journal of Epidemiology 1994; 23: 782-786. Background. Socioeconomic deprivation is associated with unhealthy living conditions and insufficient nutrient intake which affect linear growth. This study investigates the major risk factors which influence stunting in Northwest Uganda, the age range at which growth failure is more likely to occur, and the age at which chances of recovery are higher. Methods. In February-March 1987, 1072 children
