EVERY SECOND A PERSON DIES OF HUNGER
Right now, more than 1 billion people suffer from hunger. This means that 1 in every 6 people on Earth don’t get enough food to live a healthy life. This year 36 million of these people will die of hunger!
THE WORLD’S BIGGEST HEALTH PROBLEM
The number of people suffering from hunger has been growing since the mid 1990s. Well into the 21st century hunger is still the worlds biggest health problem.
A GROWING PROBLEM
The number of people who suffer from hunger grew by 75 million in 2007 and by 400 million in 2019. This is partly because food prices have been rising.
CHILDREN ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE
Every 5 seconds a child under 5 dies because of hunger, or of directly related causes.
WHAT TO DO?
Solving the hunger problem is an enormous challenge. But even so, we can all play a part of the solution. Read more in our themes about food and trade & poverty. Hunger is not an incurable disease or an unavoidable tragedy. We can make sure no child goes without food. We can stop mothers from starving themselves to feed their families. We can save lives. We can do all of this, if we are prepared to do something about it
