Opinion: As the global child hunger crisis worsens, the world must act

Devex: Ambassador Tony P. Hall and Lucy Sullivan on why nutrition interventions are a critical investment. 

"Although we know how to fight this issue, action requires investment. Without a global coalition of leaders dedicated to the plight of [hungry] children, the world will not be able to mobilize the relatively modest amount of resources needed to overcome the devastating consequences of malnutrition."

A New Community Approach to Treating Acute Malnutrition

Through an Eleanor Crook Foundation RISE for Nutrition grant, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) researches ways to improve treatment of severe acute malnutrition in South Sudan. A new set of easy-to-use, low-literacy tools could allow community health workers to provide treatment for acutely malnourished children without medical complications in their own homes. This research has the potential to transform treatment of uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition on a global scale.
