Standing Tall: Peru's Success in Overcoming its Stunting Crisis

This video shows the story of how Peru more than halved its high rates of stunting among under-five in less than a decade: from 28% in 2008 to 13% in 2016. Stunting is a silent killer. It deprives children of their right to grow, develop and prosper. It deprives children of the opportunity to reach their full potential, condemning them to a life of poverty and exclusion. Stunting harms entire communities and countries.
