According to the Global Hunger Index report, Burundi, Comoros and Eritrea currently have the highest amount of undernourished people worldwide. Even though the prevalence of underweight children has fallen in Burundi since 2000, 15 years of civil war and extreme poverty have strongly impacted the nation’s economic and nutritional wellbeing.
Despite the gradual return to peace, the majority of Burundians, some 58 percent, are chronically malnourished. There is good news with many countries achieving noteworthy progress in their fight against hunger including Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti and Rwanda.
