The purpose of this literature review is to identify the social determinants of child malnutrition in urban slums in Kenya and to review evidence for the impact of interventions that seek to reduce child malnutrition through changing its social determinants. The review will also draw out the implications of these findings for the further development of the NICK (Nutritional improvement for children in urban Chile and Kenya) Project in Kenya.
