The History of Nutrition at USAID: Chapter 1

Speeches Shim

In recent decades, the nutrition and health-related status of millions of individuals around the world has improved as a result of substantial domestic and international actions, investments, coordination and innovations. More than 100 million children have escaped the devastating and lasting effects of undernutrition over the past three decades, and young children and their mothers in low-income countries now eat better and experience less disease. Playing a leading role in such successes since 1965, the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) nutrition programming, through achievements, setbacks and learning, has advanced nutrition research, policy and programming to improve the longterm health of the world’s most vulnerable citizens.
