We're glad to show our Live Testing video participated by children living in Sambung Jawa area of Tanjung Rangas, Makassar, Indonesia. We also had an opportunity to interview a family to hear their voices about nutritious food provision for their family as well as information about MorBi+. Taken in two different areas of South Sulawesi, Makassar and Maros, this was such a great challenge and we couldn't be happier to contribute to the community of the world. It's MorBi+ time!

In a world where...
There has been the least progress in the sub- Saharan region, where more than one in four people remain undernourished – the highest prevalence of any region in the world. Nevertheless, the prevalence of undernourishment in sub-Saharan Africa has declined from 33.2 percent in 1990– 92 to 23.2 percent in 2014–16, although the number of undernourished people has actually increased. Hunger continues to take its largest toll in Southern Asia, which includes the countries of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The estimate of 276 million chronically undernourished people in 2014–16 is only marginally lower than the number in 1990– 92. Eastern Asia (where China is by far the largest country) and South-eastern Asia (including Indonesia, Philippines, Mynamar, Vietnam and others) have reduced undernutriton substantially. Latin America has the most successful developing region record in increasing food security.
