--Annual report from a leading anti-hunger NGO--

This is the first annual report from leading NGO, Action Against Hunger. It presents an accessible, jargon-free account of the causes and consequences of acute malnutrition around the world. It is the most up to date account which will be valuable to journalists, policy makers and anyone working in international development.

The report assesses the problem of acute malnutrition worldwide. Beginning with the immediate causes of hunger (inadequate diet and disease) it progresses to study the larger structural and social factors that perpetuate it. Case studies include the impact of HIV/AIDS, conflict, weak markets, mortality and malnutrition. The report recommends that a shift in traditional emergency objectives needs to be considered as part of a holistic approach to persistent hunger.
