KATHMANDU: Journalists from South Asian counties have gathered for a two-day journalism workshop on nutrition to examine the impact of malnutrition on societies and the way these countries are trying to tackle the problem.

In a statement, the World Bank said the workshop that began today will explore different policy options at national and regional levels, discussing ways to hold policymakers accountable towards the needs of citizens. “South Asia has the largest number of undernourished children in the world. It is a silent killer that rarely hits the headlines,” said Tahseen Sayed, World Bank Country Manager for Nepal. She said 82 million children under the age of five are malnourished in South Asia. The statement noted that poor nutrition leads to a third of deaths in the developing countries.
