dc.description.abstract The focus was on chronic food and nutrition insecurity, and the problems of transitory and silent hunger not dealt with. Four outcome measures, the percentages respectively, of ever married women age 15-49 years who are anaemic, of women (15-49 years) with chronic energy deficiency, of children in the age group 6-35 months who are anaemic and of children in the age group 6-35 months who are stunted. The case for strengthening a universal Public Distribution System (PDS) policy, with a uniform, affordable price for all, will help prevent malnutrition while restoring the market stabilizing function of the PDS. en
