More than 820 million people worldwide suffered from hunger in 2018, compared with 811 million a year earlier, the United Nations said, making it the third year in a row witnessed an increase in hunger around the world.

In its annual report on the state of food security and nutrition in the world released Monday and distributed in Geneva, the World Health Organization (WHO) said this underscores the enormous challenge of achieving the sustainable development goal of ending hunger by 2030.

Progress in reducing the number of stunted children by half and reducing the number of low-birth-weight children is very slow, making the sustainable development goals of nutrition far-reaching.

Against these challenges, overweight and obesity in all regions are continuing between school-age children and adults, and food insecurity is higher for women than for men on every continent, with a larger gap in Latin America.
