Malnutrition becoming Africa silent emergency
According to statistics from United Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF, over 30% of all children under 5 years in sub-Saharan Africa are suffering from stunted growth due to chronic malnutrition. Apparently, stunted children are up to four times likely to die from infectious diseases as well as have poor intellectual performance. This eventually translates into poor economic performance by African states.
