Even though 37.6pc of its children are stunted, Pakistan has managed to bring the proportion of its undernourished population down to 12.9pc from 21.1pc in 2000. Pakistan has also succeeded in reducing the percentage prevalence of wasting among children under five to 7.1pc in 2020 from 14.1pc in 2000.
