A severely malnourished baby is weighed in the out-patient department, in Jamsharoo Civil Hospital. Acute respiratory illnesses and skin diseases are common consequences of malnutrition, due to the breakdown of the immune system leaving children vulnerable to other diseases. According to UN reports, hundreds of thousands of children in Pakistan suffer from severe-acute-malnutrition, with 15.1% of children experiencing acute malnutrition. Child malnutrition has breached emergency levels in Pakistan's Sindh province, after monsoon floods devastated the country's poorest region for a second year.
