According to a recent World Bank report, more than 40 percent of children under the age of five in Pakistan suffer from stunted growth. The situation is especially worrying for some villages in Sindh province, where 66 percent of under-fives are affected. Stunting is closely linked to brain development and physical growth. If not treated before the age of two, the consequences can be irreversible. The World Bank is calling on Pakistani authorities to take emergency measures.
