Chad, 2012: Beset by chronic stunting, endemic poverty and illiteracy, as well as inadequate social services, Chadian children are among the world’s most vulnerable. In Chad, one of eight Sahelian countries currently affected by a food crisis, some 127,300 under-five children may die of nutrition-related illnesses. A renewed global commitment to child survival entails reaching those most at risk. A child is weighed in a UNICEF-supported feeding centre in N’Djamena.
