ENGAGING THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY
A critical component of GAIN’s efforts has been positioning nutrition as central to the global health and development platform, as poor nutrition is clearly an impediment for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. These links highlight the need for sustained, enhanced advocacy efforts at the national, regional and international levels, to scale up proven interventions, raise the profile of nutrition and ultimately increase human and financial resources to address malnutrition.
Key highlights include:-
- Establishing the 1,000 Days partnership. The effort promotes investment in nutrition from conception to a child’s second birthday, a critical window that shapes a child’s ability to grow and learn
- Igniting a movement for global nutrition. Future Fortified is a global campaign to help millions of women and children gain access to the essential nutrients they need to lead healthy, enriched lives.
