A better-nourished world is a better world. Yet the 2018 Global Nutrition Report shows that despite the significant steps the world has taken tow improving nutrition, lack of good nutrition is still a universal problem.

The report reviews these key findings:

  • The world is beginning to see progress in reducing malnutrition, albeit slow and not spread across all forms of malnutrition
  • There is an increasing commitment to addressing malnutrition, but not a correlative increase in financing the agenda
  • There is an urgent need to improve diets to end all forms of malnutrition
  • Data is improving, but there are still basic gaps that require further investment to help drive action
  • There are five critical steps to speed progress
