Global Health Advocates Must Hold G7 Leaders Accountable For Investments To End Malnutrition

Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ “Global Food for Thought”: Guest Commentary — Holding World Leaders to Account to End Malnutrition
Lucy Martinez Sullivan, executive director of 1,000 Days, writes, “As the G7 heads of state prepare to meet in Taormina, Italy, in May for this year’s summit, an opportunity to take concrete action to improve nutrition is readily available. … Together, we need to ensure that G7 governments — including the United States — prioritize development assistance investments that are so critical to improving nutrition around the world. Now is not the time to retreat from investments that will build the next generation of healthy, productive families and communities. With so many uncertainties as to what the future holds, one thing is certain: investing in nutrition saves lives and grows economies. It’s a win-win and a promise that must be kept” (3/9).
