Improving nutrition in China


Although China has made vast strides in eradicating poverty and hunger, some 120 million Chinese are undernourished. In rural areas, one in ten children is underweight, half are vitamin A-deficient and up to 80 % are anemic. The MDG-Fund is working in six of China's poorest counties, focusing on increased breastfeeding, better complementary foods, school-based interventions and iron supplementation for women of reproductive age.
