Abstract: Program planning and problems for nutrition development are discussed. Quarterly reports, the Food and Nutrition Policy, and the results of a nutrition workshop and national survey are presented. The government of Papua, New Guinea is stressing nutrition planning; trying to limit food imports while increasing commercial and subsistence food production; and emphasizing nutrition education. Since malnourished children under five years suffer the most, they have received the greatest scrutiny from the country's nutritionists. Malnutrition is considered a major contributing factor in over half of hospical deaths of children five and under. Recent studies have shown decreases in malnutrition rates among young children from 1975 to 1978.
