Our Commitments

By 2030, Nutrition International will:

Prevent at least 4.4 million cases of stunting – giving children the right start and increasing the impact of global investments in education, health and economic growth. 

Prevent at least 60 million cases of anaemia – driving global focus and action on a neglected issue that heavily impacts women, adolescent girls and children. 

Provide and coordinate the global supply of vitamin A capsules, ensuring at least 150 million children a year receive two doses of life-saving vitamin A. 

In total, we will transform the lives of 1 billion people – especially women, adolescent girls and children – by improving their nutritional status.

Our Events

Our solution-focused virtual side events

looked at what nutrition priorities should be to drive country-led, evidence-based, fully financed nutrition programs for the future.

November 18, 8 AM – 9:30 AM EST 

Where is the anaemia target for young children?

The missing WHA nutrition target. Perspectives on home fortification for children under five.

Hosted by the Home Fortification Technical Advisory Group – co-chaired by Nutrition International and UNICEF – this event dove into why it’s imperative for planners, speakers and donors at N4G to call for the World Health Assembly to set anaemia targets for infants and young children and promote investment in evidence-based interventions to improve the iron status of young children. This event  included valuable participation from the Nutrition Scaling Working Group.

November 22, 10 AM – 11:30 AM EST

Multisectoral collaboration in action:

Practical insights into addressing malnutrition through a multisectoral approach

The rationale for a multisectoral approach to addressing malnutrition is clear – what may be less clear is how to achieve this in practice. Co-hosted with the Power of Nutrition, this event curated a solutions-focused dialogue, based on the practical experience of organizations already delivering multisectoral approaches to addressing malnutrition.

November 23, 8 AM – 9:30 AM EST

Essential nutrition interventions and the prevention of NCDs in later life

– Results from the Nutrition International / Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health IGNITE collaboration 

Co-hosted by researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Nutrition International, this event presented new evidence and impact pathways linking maternal nutrition interventions to the prevention of non-communicable diseases in the life of a child. These new findings help to deepen the evidence base for “double duty” actions that address both undernutrition and overnutrition, and to strengthen the case for investing in nutrition as part of the Universal Health Care agenda.

December 2, 10 AM Manila Time (GMT + 8)

Promoting better nutrition outcomes through multi-sectoral approach in post-COVID 19 Asia and the Pacific

Eastern Standard Time: December 1, 9 PM

Co-hosted by the Asian Development Bank and Nutrition International, this event focused on the role of social protection programs in strengthening nutritional outcomes among priority groups — and how social protection can be designed and implemented, together with other systems, for effective recovery, nutritional growth and prosperity.
