Child Wasting: 45.4 million

Wasting in children is the life-threatening result of poor nutrient intake and/or disease. Children suffering from wasting have weakened  immunity, are susceptible to long-term developmental delays and face an increased risk of death, particularly when wasting is severe.  These children require urgent treatment and care to survive. In 2020, 45.4 million children under 5 were affected by wasting, of which 13.6 million were severely wasted.
