"Malnutrition among children under two years of age is one of the leading challenges to reducing global hunger and can cause lifelong harm to health, productivity, and earning potential, according to the 2010 Global Hunger Index (GHI)."
“The Index scores countries based on three equally weighted indicators:
- the proportion of people who are undernourished
- the proportion of children under five who are underweight, and
- the child mortality rate. The biggest contributor to the global score is child undernutrition, which accounts for almost half of the score."
