stunted children

Two out of every five children under the age of five years in India are stunted, according to a report by international charity organisation WaterAid. This makes India home to the world’s largest population of stunted children.

The report added that 48 million children under the age of five are stunted in the country. Globally, 159 million children are affected similarly, a ratio of one in four children.

Nearly 60 percent of India’s population does not have access to sanitation while 6 percent of the population doesn’t have access to water, the report said.
