Nutrition Funding: The Missing Piece of the Puzzle

The amount was pledged at the 2013 London Summit is insufficient to achieve four of the six WHA targets, according to the authors of this article. Funding that has been pledged has often been for nutrition-sensitive interventions that only indirectly affect nutritional status. More is needed for nutrition-specific programs, and over a longer period of time. The authors recommend that donors work together with countries to ensure that new pledges are made for funding nutrition-specific programs.
