During the year, we were able to allocate USD 49.7 million to our work, focusing on our main programme areas - as shown in the chart on the right.

When GAIN began in 2002, we were primarily a large-scale food fortification organisation. Our efforts since then have contributed to making fortified food available to over 1 billion people. Our current strategy is to continue this work with an emphasis on improving the quality of fortified food and the consumption of it, while growing our activities in other programme areas.

A major part of this strategy is expanding our work in transforming food systems. In 2020/2021 this represented 50% of our expenditure.
