Cameroon: Malnutrition Hits Children Arriving From Central African Republic

In Cameroon up to 1 out of 3 refugee children from Central African Republic suffer from malnutrition, a recent United Nations assessment found. Kinday Samba, WFP senior nutritionist, was part of the assessment mission. We asked her about what she saw.


Cameroon ranks 150 out of 186 on the 2012 UNDP Human Development Index. With a gross domestic product (GDP) of US$2,002 per capita, more than 40 percent of the country’s 20 million people live below the poverty line, and 70 percent depend on agro-pastoral activities.
