Afghanistan has some of the highest levels of malnutrition among children and women in the world. More than 40 percent of Afghan children less than five years old have stunted growth -- a symptom of chronic malnutrition. Stunting has life-long repercussions.

In Afghanistan, malnutrition is linked to a two percent decrease in gross domestic product.
