The Power 4: Interventions that Will Save Lives

The Power 4 analysis conducted by John Hopkins University identified the four most impactful and cost-effective ways to reduce childhood mortality due to malnutrition.

In collaboration with John Hopkins University and 1,000 Days, ECF supported an analysis to identify the most impactful and cost effective ways to reduce nutrition-related mortality through the scaling up of priority high-impact nutrition findings. By scaling up the Power 4 (wasting treatment, multiple micronutrient supplementation during pregnancy, vitamin A supplementation, and breastfeeding promotion) in high-burden countries, we have the potential to save millions of lives.
