The State of Hunger in Zimbabwe

Since its independence in 1980, Zimbabwe has experienced a tense political environment and an unstable economy. High rates of malnutrition, alarming rates of HIV/AIDS, cyclones, and frequent cholera outbreaks are huge humanitarian challenges.

Zimbabwe continues to face poor harvests, high food prices and lingering socio-economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which have exacerbated food insecurity.
