Although Children under five years under the NHIS policy is exempted from premiums, the disease continues to be prevalent among children under two years in Ahafo Ano South District of Ghana.

The high prevalence of PEM at the district continues to hinder the acheivement of the Millennium Development Goal 4.

Mothers with children less than two years suffering from PEM are also said to be suffering from several problems such as absenteeism from work and also low productivity.
