Undernutrition leads to 3.5 million child deaths every year and impairs the health and development of many more.
The causes of maternal and child undernutrition – food insecurity, poor health and inappropriate care – are preventable; still, many countries struggle to achieve a sustainable reduction of child undernutrition because their resources and capacity are not sufficient to accelerate the scale-up of nutrition actions needed.
REACH is a country-led approach to scale-up proven and effective interventions addressing child undernutrition through the partnership and coordinated action of UN agencies, civil society, donors, and the private sector, under the leadership of national governments.
REACH co-facilitates the UN network for SUN, together with the UN Standing Committee on Nutrition.
