What About Acute Malnutrition?

The State of Acute Malnutrition Website is supported by the No Wasted Lives Coalition, an interagency effort between UNICEF, Action Against Hunger, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the European Commission Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and World Food Programme (WFP).
To achieve this, the group developed the No Wasted Lives Agenda, a three-point plan seeking to:

  • Make severe acute malnutrition a political and public health priority
  • Discover and disseminate learning about a range of more effective ways to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition
  • Mobilize more money and maximize effectiveness of current spending
