The SUN Movement puts national priorities at the heart of global efforts to improve nutrition
SUN now has 66 member countries and 4 Indian States – collectively known as the SUN Countries. Each SUN Country has nominated a SUN Government Focal Point who acts as a key driving force for the national or state movement. They are supported by a multi-stakeholder platform, which can include representatives of government, civil society (specifically including women and youths), donor and United Nations agencies, businesses, and the technical community. These multi-stakeholder platforms work across sectors to embrace nutrition-sensitive approaches to tackle the underlying causes of malnutrition as well as nutrition-specific interventions to tackle its direct manifestations.
The SUN Countries are supported in achievement of their nutrition targets by the SUN Global Support System, and within this, the SUN Networks, as well as the SUN Country Action Team and Regional Hubs of the SUN Secretariat.
Each year, SUN Countries report on the status of their nutrition progress through the SUN Joint Annual Assessment, the results of which are published below in each SUN Country’s profile.
