This is the first annual report from leading NGO, Action Against Hunger. It presents an accessible, jargon-free account of the causes and consequences of acute malnutrition around the world. It is the most up to date account that will be valuable to journalists, policy makers and anyone working in international development.



The report assesses the problem of acute malnutrition worldwide. Beginning with the immediate causes of hunger (inadequate diet and disease) it progresses to study the larger structural and social factors that perpetuate it. Case studies include the impact of HIV/AIDS, conflict, weak markets, mortality and malnutrition. The report recommends that a shift in traditional emergency objectives needs to be considered as part of a holistic approach to persistent hunger.



Action Against Hunger is an international, non-governmental, non-religious, non-profit organization that was created in Paris in 1979. Since then, it has developed into an international network, with headquarters in Canada (Montreal), France (Paris), Spain (Madrid), the UK (London), and the US (New York).
