Reuters: India's malnutrition plight: The effects are more dire than we think
November 19, is the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's birth anniversary. President Pranab Mukherjee together with celebrity Bollywood actor and UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador Aamir Khan launch one of the Government of India’s most ambitious campaigns to combat malnutrition. This marks a very important step to invest in the early childhood development of the country's children. India has more malnourished children than sub Saharan Africa. The statistics are frightening and left unchecked do not augur well for the country's human development.
