Vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of preventable childhood blindness and increases the risk of death from common childhood illnesses, such as measles and diarrhoea.
Recognized as global nutrition experts, we work with governments and partners around the world to deliver low-cost, high-impact solutions to those who need it most. We integrate nutrition across sectors, strengthen local ownership and develop innovative approaches to scale.
Nutrition International combines research, technical assistance, advocacy, and partnerships to improve policies, programs and to increase resources for nutrition. We serve as a force multiplier across the development ecosystem, using our unique combination of capabilities to help countries overcome barriers to scaling up nutrition, domestic resource mobilization as well as local government capacity and ownership. We use nutrition as a pathfinder, by adding value through packages and double-duty actions rather than single interventions, and by welding nutrition onto other platforms and sectors where it is missing.
Nutrition International is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada and has regional offices in New Delhi, India to oversee Asian operations, and in Nairobi, Kenya to oversee African operations.
