Action Against Hunger USA
Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) and part of a global international network, is pleased to be part of the Every Woman Every Child movement to advance the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030). Action Against Hunger commits to sustainable, community-based interventions addressing nutrition treatment,preventive care, including promoting early child feeding practices for women and children. Working with a wide range of academic, institutional, public and private partners, we plan to commit up to USD $50,500,000 from January 2016 through December 2020 to enhance our nutrition programs using a multi-sectoral approach, accelerating the reduction of maternal and child under-nutrition, and contributing to fulfilling many of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Through this commitment, Action Against Hunger aims to improve the lives of some 590,000 women and 2.9 million children annually over the next five years in sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia. This includes support for more than 12,000 vaccinations per year; nutrition treatment for 96,000 children and 5,000 pregnant and lactating women; and provision of micronutrients to nearly 60,000 women. In total, we plan to reach 17 million children and women of reproductive age by 2020.
