The 2018 Global Nutrition Report reveals that malnutrition is unacceptably high and affects every country in the world, but that there is also an unprecedented opportunity to end it.

The 2018 edition of the Global Nutrition Report, written by the chairs of an Independent Expert Group (IEG) of world-leading academics, researchers and government representatives, was published in late November.
 
The report highlights the worrying prevalence and universality of malnutrition in all its forms. Further, it provides a concrete overview of progress made and highlights solutions from around the globe calling on all stakeholders to act now to address malnutrition.

Malnutrition is a universal issue. A third of reproductive-age women are anaemic, while 39 per cent of the world’s adults are overweight or obese and each year around 20 million babies are born underweight.

Beyond health, slow progress on malnutrition is also impacting the social and economic development of countries. It is estimated that malnutrition in all its forms could cost society up to USD 3.5 trillion per year, with overweight and obesity alone costing USD 500 billion per year.

Though significant steps are being made to address malnutrition, progress has been too slow.
