"While India's economy is thriving it is still leaving behind millions, and children are at the greatest risk. Vast inequalities exist in health services available to patients across India’s states. The poorest and most remote parts of the country often have inadequate medical facilities, poor healthcare infrastructure, low-quality health standards and a lack of medical staff. The World Food Program reports that more than a quarter of the world’s malnourished population can be found in India. The situation is critical: there are an estimated 8 million acutely malnourished children in India.
Photojournalist Stephanie Sinclair turned her lens on an MSF program in Bihar State which treats children at the epicenter of one of the world’s malnutrition hotspots. These children descend from generations of a chronically under-nourished population, making malnutrition more difficult for MSF workers to spot. Malnutrition in India is so pervasive it is almost invisible."
