Making Global Malnutrition Infamous
Currently, malnutrition causes nearly half of all child deaths worldwide, but funding to fight malnutrition accounts for less than one percent of Official Development Assistance. We’re committed to changing that by supporting robust, evidence-based, and creative advocacy to make the case for more investment and better policies on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable.
ECF primarily supports advocacy efforts in the United States and the United Kingdom, which are the two largest donors for global malnutrition.
