Chad When Tradition Kills
ADVANCE FOR SATURDAY DEC 22, 2012 In this Oct. 31, 2012 photo, a man holds up the desiccated carcass of a baby goat, in a village in the Mao region of Chad. In this Sahel nation, childhood malnutrition and related mortality persist at alarming rates, despite the fact that most affected families live within a day's journey of internationally-funded nutrition clinics. One reason is that families, bound by local custom, choose instead to seek traditional treatments, treatments which can lead to the very infections that kill their undernourished children.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
