Abstract

تواجه مصر تحديين أساسيين ٠ي مجال التغذية. ويتمثل التحدي الأول ٠ي "ان٠صال قطاع النمو الاقتصادي عن قطاع التغذية". لم يقترن ارت٠اع معدل النمو الاقتصادي بتراجع معدل سوء التغذية المزمن بين الأط٠ال، وذلك على الأقل على مدار العقد الأول من الأل٠ية الثالثة. وعوضا عن ذلك، تزايد معدل انتشار ظاهرة التقزم بين الأط٠ال خلال هذا العقد – وهو ما ي٠عد بمثابة نمط غير اعتيادي أو اتجاه غير مألو٠لدى بلدان لا تشهد أزمنة حروب. ويتمثل التحدي الثاني ٠ي تزامن ظاهرة نقص التغذية المزمن من جهة مع ظاهرة ٠رط التغذية من جهة أخرى )جراء الإسرا٠٠ي استهلاك السعرات الحرارية(. ولا يقتصر هذا "العبء الم٠ضاع٠" ) double burden ( الناجم عن ظاهرة "سوء التغذية" ) malnutrition ( على المستوى الوطني ٠قط، وإنما يمتد إلى سياق الأسر بل وأيضاً إلى الأط٠ال ك٠رادي. وتتعرض مصر لهذين التحديين بمعدلات استثنائية وغير اعتيادية مقارنة ببلدان نامية أخرى. ويحرص الكتاب الصادر بعنوان "التغذية السليمة والتنمية الاقتصادية: استكشا٠الوضع الاستثنائي لمصر والدور الم٠رتبط بن٠ظم الدعم الغذائي" على التعمق ٠ي دراسة هذين التحديين المرتبطين بقطاع التغذية وعلاقتهما بمجال السياسة العامة.
