The aim of this paper resulting from ten years of
humanitarian sanitary missions in Guinea Bissau (a small
country among the ten poorest in the world), is to promote
reflection that favours a synthesis about the long – standing
problem of enteral nutrition in infants and children with
digestive diseases in sub-saharian countries. The issue is
difficult, little known and controversial; the solutions are still
far away but definitely linked to future changes in culture,
politics and healthcare. The support by everybody is and will
be vital for the safe of our young patients.
