What it will take
An investment of $7 billion per year is needed from donors and governments to reach the global targets to reduce stunting, wasting, anemia in women, and exclusive breastfeeding.
It’s time to scale-up
Nutrition programs are woefully underfunded. Spending on high-impact life-saving nutrition investments account for only 1% of global development assistance despite the fact that malnutrition contributes to 45% of all deaths of children under age five.
Return on Investment
Improving nutrition during the critical 1,000 day window between pregnancy and a child’s 2nd birthday is one of the best investments donors and countries can make to ensure brighter, more prosperous futures.
