The unfinished child health agenda includes tackling stunting rates as high as 30 per cent and related risks.
Natural disasters and conflict often exacerbate the vulnerability of individuals; people must cope with threats such as sexual violence, violence in the home, separation of families, exploitative labor, and exclusion from life -saving humanitarian assistance.
