Amid difficulties and setbacks attributable to civil wars, poverty and the underlying prolonged drought. Rwanda eyes ending malnutrition, stunting and infant mortality through public-private partnership with Africa Improved Foods, Royal DSM, FMO Dutch development bank, IFC, World Food Programme, the World Bank Group and more. A report on Rwanda by WFP shows that stunting in five year olds dropped to 36.7 per cent in 2015, from 43 per cent in 2012.
