An Investment Framework for Nutrition
Reaching the Global Targets for Stunting, Anemia, Breastfeeding and Wasting
In 2012, the 176 members of the World Health Assembly endorsed the first-ever global nutrition targets, focusing on six areas: stunting, anemia, low birthweight, childhood overweight, breastfeeding, and wasting. These targets aim to boost investments in cost-effective interventions, spearhead better implementation practices, and catalyze progress toward decreasing malnutrition. This framework outlines the rationale, key action recommendations and research needs required to meet these targets.
