global nutrition report

Stunting rates of children are falling in every region except for Africa.
What is malnutrition? It's all around you. It's your friend's baby who just won't grow properly through lack of the right kind of feeding; it's your exhausted mother who does not have enough vitamins and minerals coursing through her veins; it's your father's high blood pressure.
Since the last publication of this Report, it is increasingly clear that malnutrition happens on both ends of the growth curve -- underweight and overweight -- both with implications for individuals, health systems and societies.
There is a public health crisis that is threatening the health and lives of men, women and children across our planet at an alarming rate, and the richest nations are affected as well as the poorest.
