The problem of hunger and undernourishment has been widely prevalent for decades together and has found a constant priority in the various global development goals. Acknowledging the fact that the global population is more or less exposed to the threat of food insecurity, it has been projected that in excess of 2 billion people are lacking consistent access to safe, healthy and adequate amount of food. It is very much clear that our efforts to respond to these challenging trends have to be well planned and concerted, especially in terms of the involvement of all the stakeholders, including international welfare agencies. In conclusion, the problem of hunger is on the rise, especially in the low and middle-income nations. The need of the hour is to make it as a public health priority and respond to the problem in an effective and well-coordinated manner.
