In 1993 the World Health Organization (WHO) undertook a
comprehensive review of the uses and interpretation of
anthropometric references. The review concluded that the
NCHS/WHO growth reference, which had been recommended for
international use since the late 1970s, did not adequately represent
early childhood growth and that new growth curves were necessary.
The World Health Assembly endorsed this recommendation in 1994.
The WHO Multicentre Growth Reference Study (MGRS) was
undertaken in response to that endorsement and implemented between
1997 and 2003 to generate new curves for assessing the growth and
development of children the world over. The MGRS collected
primary growth data and related information from 8440 healthy
breastfed infants and young children from diverse ethnic backgrounds
and cultural settings (Brazil, Ghana, India, Norway, Oman and USA).
The growth standards developed based on these data and presented in
this report provide a technically robust tool that represents the best
description of physiological growth for children under five years of
age. The standards depict normal early childhood growth under
optimal environmental conditions and can be used to assess children
everywhere, regardless of ethnicity, socioeconomic status and type of
feeding.
