Governments worldwide are being advised by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to make milk and dairy products more accessible to the poor and vulnerable.

FAO's latest publication entitled Milk and Dairy Products in Human Nutrition, says these products make for healthy bones and are a vital source of nutrition.
