    It’s interesting how we always say that most of child malnutrition is concentrated in Africa, which is true if you consider the geography. But in terms of population India’s just as big as Africa, and India is right in the reddest category!

    Great map, thanks a lot.

    Are you sure you’re figures are accurate for Guatemala?

    I would be very surprised if the figures for Saudi Arabia are correct. I have lived there for several years and it doesn’t seem to add up.

    I do agree with the general principle of your petition, however, and hope that this issue is addressed.

    This map seems inaccurate. India has 43%, but its neighbour Pakistan has 0%? The countries are very alike and are both stricken by poverty, i’ve been to both places so I know.

  5. Sasuke: The gray coloure of Pakistan, China, Nigeria, Sweden etc. probably means no data, although it is not included in the legend.

    New Zealand is also in the grey category. But many people here cannot afford to give money to help in other countries with malnutrition programmes. The sort of malnutrition here is very much a westernised condition of poverty. It does exist, but in a different sense than in Africa or India.
