No Wasted Lives


ACCELERATING ACTION FOR CHILDREN WITH ACUTE MALNUTRITION

 

Severe acute malnutrition results in 1 - 2 million preventable child deaths each year and affects children’s prospects of surviving and thriving in all areas of their lives. Severely malnourished children are nine times more likely to die from common infection than their better-nourished peers.

Treatment is simple & effective


MORE THAN 70% OF CHILDREN TREATED ARE CURED but less than 20% of children affected are able to access the treatment they need

IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY

THE WORLD HAS THE KNOWLEDGE, THE ABILITY AND THE RESOURCES TO HELP

By investing more resources and working better together we could save millions of lives, and build a brighter, more productive future for all.

Recognising the scale of the challenge and the opportunity for change, UNICEF, the UK government, the European Commission, the World Food Programme, Action Against Hunger and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation have joined forces to accelerate collective global action.

The No Wasted Lives Coalition will promote a coordinated approach to child health and nutrition, which builds on the excellent work already being done, while supporting governments, donors and NGOs to realise the synergies of cooperation.

By working together, with governments and and other key players, No Wasted Lives will make severe acute malnutrition a political and public health priority, discover and disseminate effective ways to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition, mobilise more money and maximise effectiveness of current spending.
