In a longitudinal study of 200 randomly selected underfives were followed fortnightly for a period of one calendar year (January to December 91) to ascertain the influence of undernutrition and vitamin A deficiency on the ARI incidence. The study revealed that on an average a child suffered from 5.9 episodes of ARI in one year period. Children who were undernourished or showed signs of vitamin A deficiency had significantly greater risk of AIR attacks.
