Even before COVID-19, child malnutrition was an underlying cause of nearly half of all preventable deaths of children under age 5. But COVID-19 has made it worse—UNICEF estimates that 22 percent of the world’s children under 5 are stunted (too short for their age) due to malnutrition.
The bipartisan Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act (S.2956/H.R.4693) calls for a coordinated strategy for USAID nutrition assistance and sets clear targets for reaching the most impoverished children and families with effective interventions.This legislation will assure U.S. leadership in ending severe child malnutrition. Ask your senators to cosponsor S.2956 and your representative to cosponsor H.R.4693 here.
