A wave of hunger and malnutrition, spurred by COVID-19, threatens children and families around the world. Despite being entirely preventable, malnutrition takes a child’s life every 11 seconds.

The Nutrition CEO Council is a body of leaders from International non-governmental organizations (INGO) that believes:

  • The global nutrition situation is dire.
  • Expertise exists, and has been tested, that could address global malnutrition.
  • It is right and appropriate to take action to encourage and support the U.S. government, civil society, corporations, and other stakeholders to make that expertise into law and policy.
