    1,000 Days and Scaling Up Nutrition 1,000 Days and Scaling Up Nutrition Presentation Transcript

    • SCALING UP NUTRITION Jenny Matthews/Save the Children Jenny Matthews/Save the Children A Crucial Window for Child Development 1,000 Days refers to the time from the start of a mother’s pregnancy until a child turns two years old. Research shows that children who are undernourished during this period are far more likely to suffer from long-term health problems, poorer educational performance, and lower economic prosperity. Every year, 3.5 million children under five die as a result of causes related to undernutrition. Scaling Up Solutions Jeff Holt/Save the ChildrenJeff Holt/Save the Children Fortunately, proven and cost-effective solutions exist that can drastically reduce undernutrition. Building from research in The Lancet medical journal, the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Framework and Roadmap outline a vision for scaling up these solutions throughout the developing world. Proven interventions include educating about healthy practices, fortifying foods, and providing nutritional supplements during the 1,000 day period. Building a Global Movement The 1,000 Days effort aims to jumpstart implementation of the WFP/Alejandro Chicheri SUN Framework and Roadmap in countries that indicate an interest in moving forward quickly to combat undernutrition. SUN stakeholders will support country-led strategies to scale up nutrition interventions and integrate them across sectors. At the same time, advocates around the world will raise awareness and keep undernutrition high on the global agenda. Find out more at our Knowledge Fair booth or visit www.thousanddays.org
