Our approach to fighting global malnutrition

ECF is proud to share that we have been awarded $25 million through the Open Philanthropy Regranting Challenge. This incredibly generous investment will allow us to double down on our efforts to scale the most cost-effective interventions to prevent and treat malnutrition.
Babies get the best start in life when they are fed only breast milk until six months old and continue breastfeeding until at least age two. Though breastfeeding is one of the best ways to protect newborns from malnutrition, infections, disease, and death, today just four out of ten babies around the world are exclusively breastfed.
The 5th Annual Workshop of the Global CoP on Scaling Development Outcomes was held virtually on October 19, 20, 23, 26, 28, and 30, 2020, and featured three panel sessions and discussion sessions hosted by each of the nine Working Groups.
