22% population is undernourished in Pakistan, reveals Global Hunger Index:
Pakistan has 22 per cent of its population undernourished, though it improved from a previous “alarming” hunger level among developing countries, the Global Hunger Index revealed on Tuesday.
Ranked 108 among 118 countries on the index, Pakistan remained on a “serious” level, scoring 33.4 against 35.1 in the 2008 index:
The country performed worst than neighbours India and Bangladesh, which scored 28.5 and 27.1 respectively, but better than Afghanistan’s 34.8. Another 43 countries, including India, Nigeria and Indonesia, showed “serious” hunger levels.
The hunger index ranks countries based on undernourishment, child mortality, child wasting (low weight for height) and child stunting (low height for age).
There remain 5.1 million Pakistani children of primary school age who are out of school. This is the second highest in the world and is over twice as many as in India. Of the poorest 20%, a tragic 2 in 3 girls do not go to school; one of the worst gender inequalities in the world... http://www.carepakistan.org/the-state-of-education-in-pakistan.html
