In the context of a renewed global momentum for improving nutrition and a resultant increased complexity of the nutrition landscape, the Programme Area Network on Nutrition developed a fit-for-purpose and coherent nutrition strategy, WHO’s Ambition and Action in Nutrition 2016-2025. This has been the first-ever strategic exercise on nutrition undertaken by WHO. The strategy was developed in the context of the internal WHO reform.
WHO’s Ambition and Action in Nutrition 2016-2025 is anchored in the six global targets for improving maternal, infant and young child nutrition and the global diet-related NCD targets. It was developed in consultation with more than 100 WHO staff and multiple partners over an 18-month period.

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
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.
