    Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis on Stunting among children under 5 years, Lao PDR

    This analysis uses the UNICEF Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis toolbox to describe and unpack the situation of multidimensional child poverty in Lao PDR, with a focus on nutritional status and stunting among children under 5 years, with sensitivity to children’s lifecycle and contextualized needs and rights. The report shows that at both national and provincial levels, every stunted child in Lao PDR is also deprived in three or more areas of well-being, emphasizing the high correlation between stunting and multidimensional poverty in the country and suggesting that reducing stunting can be only achieved with the reduction of multidimensional poverty.
