Nutrition at a glance

April 2010 - January 2012

 

Nutrition Profiles of the Countries with the Highest Burden of Undernutrition were created to provide summary information for country leaders, development partners, and stakeholders about the extent, costs, and causes of malnutrition, as well as potential solutions to malnutrition. The countries profiled include the 36 countries identified in The Lancet (Black et al., 2008) that account for 90 percent of the world's stunted children, and 32 smaller countries with rates of stunting and/or underweight greater than 20 percent. The country profiles focus on three key messages: 1) malnutrition remains the single largest cause of child mortality; 2) economic growth alone does not solve malnutrition; and 3) investing in nutrition is cost-effective. The Nutrition Country Profiles were created to inspire action and investment in nutrition in the high-burden countries to reduce child and maternal mortality, and to improve the economic potential of nations.
