On 26 September 2017, the Chief Executive of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, signed a letter of commitment to join the 59 SUN Countries and 3 Indian States that form the SUN Movement, and is fighting to end malnutrition in all its forms, everywhere, by 2030.

Afghanistan has achieved considerable progress in tackling malnutrition over the past decades, but high rates of undernutrition persists, particularly among children under five years old and women of reproductive age (15-49 years old).
