Gender and Nutrition
Women and nutrition are connected in many ways. Gender inequality is both a cause and effect of malnutrition, hunger and poverty. We will not succeed in scaling up nutrition if we do not address the drivers and impacts of gender-based discrimination.
The SUN Movement has developed a digital communications toolkit on gender and nutrition, which seeks to:
Clarify the interlinkages and interdependence between gender and nutrition.
Amplify the initiatives that countries are carrying out to scale up gender-transformative nutrition actions
Support countries in raising awareness on the essential links that connect nutrition, empowerment and the benefits of gender equality for all individuals, families, societies and nations
Call on all stakeholders to integrate a gender lens as part of good nutrition, food security and the reduction of inequalities
