New Delhi, (UNI)

India remains severely affected by malnutrition, with one of the highest rates of within-country inequalities in malnutrition globally, the 2020 Global Nutrition Report said.

However, some progress has been made to tackle stunting and underweight, and the country has put in place innovative programmes aimed at reaching the most vulnerable. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the weakness of food and health systems, disproportionately impacting already vulnerable populations. The report stresses that the need to address malnutrition in all its forms by tackling injustices in food and health systems is now more urgent than ever.
