  • Every year, authors, journalists, teachers, researchers, schoolchildren and students ask us for statistics about hunger and malnutrition. To help answer these questions, we've compiled a list of useful facts and figures on world hunger.
  • Malaria /məˈleriə/: a serious illness caused by being bitten by a mosquito, usually in a hot countryTuberculosis /tʊˌbɜrkjəˈloʊsɪs/: a serious infectious disease affecting your lungs
  • Hunger is a lack of food that can cause illness or deathDaily undernourishment is a less visible form of hunger
  • This is the hunger map, Where is your country?
  • Lets get started now with the fact # 1
  • 870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat. This number has fallen by 130 million since 1990, but progress slowed after 2008.
  • The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.
  • Asia and the Pacific have the largest share of the world's hungry people (some 563 million) but the trend is downward. 
  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year.
  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year.
  • One out of six children -- roughly 100 million -- in developing countries is underweight. 
  • One in four of the world's children are stunted. In developing countries the proportion can rise to one in three. 
  • Nutritious /nuˈtrɪʃəs/: nutritious foods provide the substances that people need in order to be healthy
  •  80 percent of the world's stunted children live in just 20 countries. 
  • 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.
