In June, the Bountiful Children’s Foundation screened children in Ghana for malnutrtion. From the results below, you can see the nutritional status of children varies by area but over half of the 282 children we evaluated are malnourished.
Number of Undernourished Children by Area
Over half of the children screened are malnourished.
The chart below shows the percentage of children in each area who are acutely malnourished, chronically malnourished, at risk, and normal based on their height and weight measurements from the screenings.
Nutritional Status of Children in Ghana
Acute malnutrition is especially high in Kasoa.
We appreciate all of the work done by local coordinators and leaders in Ghana as well as donors who are helping us to reach these children in Ghana. Thank you.
