An estimated 195 million children worldwide suffer from the effects of malnutrition, with 90 percent living in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Malnutrition is thought to contribute to the deaths of millions of children under the age of 5 each year.

To try to expose the crisis of childhood malnutrition, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières and VII Photo have partnered to create Starved for Attention, a global multimedia campaign presenting stories from Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, India, Mexico, and the United States.

One story in the series, Terrifing Normalcy, by award-winning photojournalist Ron Haviv, focuses on Bangladesh, where UNICEF estimates 48 percent of all Bengali children under five are malnourished.
