One of the foremost effects of poverty is malnutrition. Malnutrition greatly reduces the effectiveness of the immune system, thus increasing the susceptibility to disease and impairing development (UN).
Women living in extreme poverty represent 70% of the world’s 1 billion poorest people (Global Poverty Project). Women in this situation must survive and provide for their family on less than $2.00 a day.
