Despite Rwanda’s remarkable progress on multiple socioeconomic indicators over the past few years, the burden of malnutrition in the country remains persistently high. While the country boasts the highest exclusive breastfeeding rate in the world at 87%, Rwanda’s stunting rate of 38% places it at 110th in a ranking of 132 countries. The country’s rate of vitamin A deficiency in children 6–59 months old remains 39%. Substantial stunting prevalence gaps based on income and urbanization persist. The Cost of Hunger in Rwanda report estimates that the equivalent of 11.5% of the country’s GDP was lost in 2012 as a consequence of child undernutrition, with more than three million people of working age not able to achieve their potential.
