Unicef Cites China’s Gains in Fighting Child Hunger – Sharon LaFraniere

From the New York Times (link):

China has made huge strides in reducing malnutrition among over the past 15 years, while India recorded only modest progress and eastern and southern Africa made no gains at all, according to a report released Tuesday by Unicef.

More than one child in four in the developing world is undernourished, the organization said, a decline of just five percentage points since 1990. At that rate, officials said, the world will not meet the United Nations target of halving the number of undernourished children by 2015.
