Action Against Hunger has been working in Pakistan since 2005


Undernutrition is still a major concern in Pakistan.

Country Overview

In Pakistan, 45% of children suffer from stunted growth due to undernutrition. In addition to being frequently affected by natural disasters, the country ranks seventh among the most vulnerable to global warming. 

The country faces persistent drought, especially in the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan, resulting in insecurity and ultimately in undernutrition. 

In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provence, numerous population displacements took place as a result of crisis. Here 48% of children are stunted and the overall acute malnutrition rate is 17.3%.
