The bulk of malnourished people (98%) are concentrated in developing countries

Two thirds of those are concentrated in just seven countries: Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia and Pakistan. More than 40% live in China and India alone. Sub-Saharan Africa remains the region with the highest prevalence of hunger, with 30% of the population undernourished.
