Organized by Center for Strategic & International Studies

Stretching the Dollar, Increasing the Reach: Maximizing U.S. Global Nutrition Investments

Thursday, March 28, 2019
3:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT

1616 Rhode Island Ave NW,
Washington, DC, 20036


The event will explore how the U.S. government can address the critical gaps and opportunities outlined in our nutrition policy primer, which will be launched at the event. The primer provides a global nutrition 101 for policymakers with key terms, interventions, and target cohorts and a landscape overview of the priority issues in global nutrition, important players, and the U.S. government’s investments. The primer also identifies critical gaps including a $70 billion global funding gap toward the World Health Assembly’s stunting, anemia, exclusive breastfeeding, and wasting goals; data gaps in how best to reach adolescents during a critical growth period; and the lack of transparency of U.S. government nutrition investments and impact. The primer sets forth a proposal to increase the annual U.S. investment with specific ideas for how those additional resources can have impact programmatically and operationally, as well as in filling knowledge gaps.

A diverse group of panelists will share their perspectives on how the U.S. government can better utilize its global nutrition investments as a powerful U.S. foreign policy tool that can maximize its other health and development portfolios, drive economic growth, and mitigate conflict and political instability.
