This description of Abel Albino's work was prepared when Abel Albino was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
With the aim of eliminating childhood malnutrition as a major health problem in Argentina, physician Abel Albino has devised a multi-pronged strategy that includes low-cost "micro-hospitals," where malnourished toddlers can receive the specialized medical attention that they need. After implementing the program in Mendoza on a pilot basis, he intends to replicate it throughout the country.
