The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Annual Progress Report 2016

Thank you to the thousands of supporters from SUN Countries and across SUN Networks who have contributed to this report. Enriched by the many Joint Assessment exercises carried out across SUN Countries, the 2016 report shares insights about the great strides being made across the Movement to end malnutrition in all its forms. By working together, across sectors and with different stakeholders, we are putting women and girls at the centre of our efforts as we strive to reach the most vulnerable communities and ensure that no one is left behind 

The 2016 Global Nutrition Report

On 14 June 2016, the independent and comprehensive annual review of the state of the world’s nutrition, the Global Nutrition Report, was launched simultaneously in multiple locations around the world. The Global Nutrition Report is a multipartner initiative that holds a mirror up to the successes and failures of meeting intergovernmental nutrition targets. It documents progress on commitments made on the global stage, and it recommends actions to accelerate that progress.

This third edition of the Global Nutrition Report aims to be a beacon, providing examples of change and identifying opportunities for action. The 2016 report focuses on the theme of making—and measuring— SMART commitments to nutrition and identifying what it will take to end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030.

The regional launch of the report follows the global launch that was held in November last year at the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) in Rome.

“This report is the first of its kind that gives us a well-researched and integrated picture of the challenge of nutrition,” says Baguma Tinkasiimire Richard, the coordinator of the Uganda Health Communication Alliance ahead of the launch.
