SUN Government Focal Points

When a SUN Country joins the SUN Movement, they are encouraged to nominate a high-level individual who is well placed to unite the nutrition community to be the SUN Government Focal Point. Many SUN Countries have SUN Government Focal Points who are the leaders in challenging cross sectoral and multi-stakeholder environments. They are often at the forefront of elevating nutrition up the national agenda.

The increasingly inter-connected network of SUN Government Focal Points, supported by their multi-stakeholder platforms, is a core reason why the SUN Movement continues to grow as a unique Movement, capable of mobilising for results across all sectors.
