FANRPAN CEO, Dr LM Sibanda participated in the Nutrition for Growth: Beating Hunger through Business and Science conference on 8 June 2013. The event was co-hosted by the UK government, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), and the Government of Brazil, bringing together business leaders, scientists, governments and civil society to make the political and financial commitments needed to prevent under-nutrition, enabling people and nations to prosper.

The participants, who signed a Global Nutrition for Growth Compact, committed their countries and organizations by 2020 to:

  • improving the nutrition of 500 million pregnant women and young children
  • reducing the number of children under five who are stunted by an additional 20 million
  • saving the lives of at least 1.7 million children by preventing stunting, increasing breastfeeding and better treatment of severe and acute malnutrition.
