New Research Shows Nutrition Programs Targeting Pregnancy and First 24 Months of Life Dramatically Improve Child Survival and Overall Health
Date:1/16/2008

iven to effective interventions targeting pregnant women and children less than 2 years of age, and to develop strategies for increasing public demand for these interventions and delivering them at scale.

The final paper provides recommendations for how international aid organizations can be more effective in supporting national nutrition efforts, including: a new global governance structure; a more effective United Nations, fewer parallel organizations, but also fewer mandate gaps; and increased investment in capacity strengthening in high-burden countries.

"The Lancet series provides an unprecedented blueprint for improving nutrition and the overall health of world's poorest women and young children," said Dr. Tachi Yamada, President of the Gates Foundation's Global Health Program. "Policymakers and donors worldwide must act on these findings to break the devastating cycle of undernutrition in developing countries."

A panel of leading international public health experts announced the research findings today at events at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., and in London at the Science Media Centre.

About the Series

Subsequent launches will be held in Ethiopia, Peru, India, Vietnam and Senegal over the coming weeks to raise awareness and spur greater support for nutrition initiatives at the country level. Many international health and development agencies including UNICEF, USAID, the World Bank, and the World Health Organization contributed to the production of the series, which includes contributions from leading academics and nutrition experts from the UK, USA, Asia, and Africa.
