Many Children in Niger Acutely Malnourished

Published on 25 June 2000

A United Nations survey shows a marked deterioration in the nutritional status of children in Niger. The World Food Program and UN Children's Fund, which carried out the annual nutritional assessment, are urgently appealing to the international community for help in combating rising malnutrition rates among Niger's children. The UN agencies find the situation of children in Niger is far worse now than it was 12 months ago when their last nutritional assessment was issued.
