In June 2017, Bread for the World released a new briefing paper to review the contribution of the United States in ending global malnutrition. The United States has been critical to global nutrition efforts for decades and the paper stresses that the country must continue to be a leader and honor their commitments.

Worldwide, maternal and child malnutrition causes millions of deaths each year. In some countries, it holds entire generations back from reaching their economic potential. Bread for the World states that losing U.S. momentum would stall global progress, putting current and future generations in unnecessary danger of death or lifelong disability.

Key points

  • Helping countries end maternal and child malnutrition is in the U.S. national and strategic interest. Now is the time to act in order to accelerate progress quickly enough to end malnutrition by 2030.
  • While the trends show progress on maternal and child nutrition, the continuation of progress is vulnerable if the U.S. government steps back.
  • Congressional leadership is critical to ensuring that the United States keeps its commitments, supporting country-led efforts to improve nutrition among mothers and their young children.
