U.S. Global Nutrition Investments: The Lynchpin for Achieving Broader Health and Development Goals

Efforts to improve nutrition are among the most transformative and cost-effective interventions in global health and food security. Affecting one in three people globally, malnutrition is inherently intertwined with other pressing health and development challenges. As the single largest donor to global nutrition efforts, the United States plays a critical role in addressing malnutrition and advocating greater global support. Uganda, as a focal country of U.S. nutrition, health, food security, and agriculture initiatives, provides a specific lens through which to assess U.S. support and global opportunities for advancing nutrition. The CSIS Global Health Policy Center and the CSIS Global Food Security Project are co-hosting this event to launch their report from a recent research trip to the country and discuss the future of nutrition as a priority within U.S. development assistance policy.
