Global Hunger Index Report: Where does Pakistan stand? How about India ?

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan stands at 106 position out of 119 countries on Global Hunger Index.

India has been ranked at the 103rd position among 119 countries on the Global Hunger Index, says a report.

According to the report, prepared by Welthungerhilfe and Concern Worldwide.

The GHI, now in its 13th year, ranks countries based on four key indicators -- undernourishment, child mortality, child wasting and child stunting.

Child wasting refers to share of children under the age of five who have low weight for their height, reflecting acute undernutrition.

China stands at (25th spot), Nepal (72), Myanmar (68), Sri Lanka (67) and Bangladesh (86).

Pakistan is placed at the 106th position.

While noting that hunger varies enormously by region, the report said this year's GHI scores for South Asia and Africa south of the Sahara reflect serious levels of hunger.
