We Are Generation Nutrition

Today there are 52 million children in the world suffering from acute malnutrition - 1 in 12 children globally.
 
One million children die every year as a result of the condition and millions more have their prospects irreversibly damaged by its devastating effects.
 
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
 
Acute malnutrition is an avoidable tragedy. For the first time in history, we know how to treat acutely malnourished children so they survive and recover, and we know how to prevent the condition from occurring in the first place.
 
That is why we have come together with 24 civil society organizations to launch the Generation Nutrition campaign to end child deaths due to acute malnutrition.

We need your help to ensure governments end this scandal and reach our goal by 2035.
 
Join us and call on world leaders to take urgent action to tackle acute child malnutrition
 
If we act now, we can be the generation to end child deaths from acute malnutrition forever.
 
We are #GenerationNutrition
 
Together, we can make sure governments take action now, because we are all Generation Nutrition.
 
Our 10 point plan to end this everyday emergency:

The Generation Nutrition coalition launched  a report which provides 10 key ways that we can tackle acute malnutrition in under-fives. We recommend enhancing  intervention and prevention strategies, including programs such as our nutrition work in Ethiopia and ensuring acute malnutrition features high on all initiatives, in particular the post-2015 framework.
