FINANCING GLOBAL NUTRITION TARGETS: ACF STATEMENT

There is a pressing need for global action on nutrition. Malnutrition is the underlying cause of 45% of all child deaths. In January 2016, the WHO executive board secretariat assessed the progress towards the WHA global targets, and recalled that the total number of stunted children under 5 years of age worldwide was 159 million and SAM affected an estimated 16 million children worldwide in 2014.

The progress and results towards scaling up nutrition investments give proof of a real momentum for nutrition. The WHA target costing is a good example of such progress, as the largest study of its kind on estimated costs and financial needs for nutrition from 2016 to 2025. This study aims at assessing the financial resources needed to reach four of the six global nutrition targets: stunting, wasting, anemia, and breastfeeding, and assumes that the resource gap will be closed through a coordinate effort to mobilize additional resources from countries, donors, private sources, and innovative financing mechanisms. Action Against Hunger welcomes this study, and takes advantage of this unique opportunity to raise its main points of interest.
