Sri Lanka ranked 64th out of the 107 countries in the 2020 Global Hunger Index, with a score of 16.3 and has a level of hunger that is moderate.

The 2020 GHI released last week examines levels of hunger in 107 developing countries and scores them based on four indicators - the prevalence of undernourishment, child stunting (low height-for-age), child wasting (low weight-for-height), and child mortality.

Despite efforts to increase the nutritional level of Sri Lanka's children, Sri Lanka still experiences a malnutrition burden among its under-five population and behind the developing country average in child stunting.
