Leading the charge on nutrition.

Good nutrition is the foundation of development. It supports overall health and growth as well as learning and education, all of which allow people to reach their full potential whether at school, work or in their community. Every facet of every life is, in some way, impacted by having or not having the right nutrition at the right time.

For 30 years, Nutrition International has been helping build a better world by increasing people’s access to the nutrition they need, when they need it. What began as the Micronutrient Initiative, a small secretariat created by Canada, has grown to become a global powerhouse of nutrition action – delivering essential nutrition interventions, contributing valuable data and evidence to the global community, and leading advocacy efforts at every level to increase prioritization and investment.

Nutrition International’s approach of working hand in hand with local governments as an expert ally has resulted in sustainable improvements to people’s nutrition around the world and led to advancements in health, equality and human capital.
