The Etiology, Risk Factors and Interactions of Enteric Infections and Malnutrition and the Consequences for Child Health and Development Project (MAL-ED) is a collaborative project supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Foundation for the NIH, and the NIH, Fogarty International Center. We thank the staff and participants of the MAL-ED Network Project for their important contributions.
