The recently-released report has been prepared jointly by the Irish aid agency Concern worldwide and the German organisation Welthungerhilfe.

However, India’s GHI score has also improved from 38.8 in 2000 to the range of 28.2-29.1 between 2014 and 2022.
The GHI score is been calculated on four indicators, undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting and the mortality rate of children under the age of five.

Child wasting refers to the share of children under the age of five who have low weight for their height as a result of acute undernutrition.

While, Child stunting measures the proportion of children under the age of five who have low height for their age due to the impact of chronic undernutrition.

According to the report, 17 countries shared the top rank with GHI score of less than 5.
The GHI which tracks hunger and malnutrition, the level of hunger in India is “serious”.
