We convene and host a Forum for governments and other donors involved in funding the response to severe acute malnutrition. The group brings together traditional and nontraditional donors and recipient governments with a view to increasing the overall amount of money available, improving coordination of existing investments, unlocking new health and long-term funding, and bringing new donors and businesses to the table.
The Forum provides a place to share the latest intelligence on impact, current funding, and projected needs. It helps donors compare their messaging, approaches and priorities to ensure they are coherent with each other. It also encourages better integration of funding for severe acute malnutrition into global health budgets and gives donors, governments and service providers the best chance of driving down costs and maximising economies of scale.
