Improving nutrition in developing countries is both a humanitarian and economic imperative. This publication provides a systematic evaluation of what works and what does not with a review of the major nutrition problems in Asia, a review of supplementation and fortification efficacy and effectiveness trials, and an impact assessment of food-based approaches to improve maternal and child nutrition. It calls for a sensible level of investment in operations research and cost-effectiveness analysis to improve nutrition programming throughout the donor community and national budgets in developing countries
