A Million Afghan Children Are At Risk Of Dying By Malnutrition


WHO : A million Afghan children are at risk of dying by malnutrition

Around 3.2 million children are expected to suffer from acute malnutrition in Afghanistan by the end of this year, with 1 million of them at risk of dying as temperatures drop, a World Health Organization spokesperson said.

After the Taliban takeover the health sector has been hit especially hard, with many healthcare workers fleeing due to unpaid salaries.

Measles situations have been witnessing a spike in Afghanistan, with WHO data showing as many as 24,000 clinical situations had so far been reported.

Due to the latest temperature drop at nighttime which is below zero degrees, the old and the young children are left unprotected to other diseases.
