Health Systems in Crisis: The Global Fund's Impact in Ukraine

10 May 2022

Since its creation, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria has supported local organisations around the world to reduce the number of deaths from the three diseases drastically, as well as working to strengthen health systems globally. This work is all the more important in the face of crisis, like the Russian invasion of Ukraine launched on 24th February 2022.

Prior to the outbreak of war, the Global Fund already invested $850m in Ukraine, where HIV and...

Time for Action - A renewed UK commitment to nutrition

5 October 2021
The UK has played an active role in tackling malnutrition since founding the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) initiative, alongside Japan and Brazil, and hosting the first ever Nutrition for Growth summit in 2013. The December 2021 Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit is a crucial opportunity to pledge commitments that will help reverse the rise in malnutrition caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The outcomes of the Summit will be decisive for the future health, development and economic potential of...

Polio Endgame - The risks and opportunities for polio transition and integration

11 August 2021
Polio Endgame - The risks and opportunities for polio transition and integration (briefing)

Since efforts to eradicate polio began in 1988, the world has made remarkable progress; reducing the number of cases by over 99%. With the WHO African region being certified free of wild poliovirus as of August 2020, wild polio now remains in two...

Malnutrition is sexist - The determinants of nutrition for women and girls

2 June 2021

Malnutrition is the single largest cause of death among women. Women and girls living with lower incomes face more barriers to accessing healthy food than men. To realise women and girls’ rights, gender equality should be considered as a social determinant of nutrition.

This briefing aims to explain the disproportionate impact of malnutrition on women and girls. It argues that the most meaningful way to improve nutrition among women and girls is to address the various underlying...

Annual Report 2019

18 February 2021

2019 was a highly successful year, with gains in resourcing for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, growing political support for action on nutrition and education, and increasing sector leadership on vaccinations and child health. However, it is clear that 2020 is bringing both tremendous challenges as well as opportunities. There are three momentous things which have upended any plans we had made.

First, with COVID-19 dominating world events in 2020, it is fair to say...

Nutrition as a Human Right: adopting a rights-based approach to food in the context of COVID-19

20 January 2021

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic provoked a global health crisis, with a significant impact on the existing burden of malnutrition. Now, many more children will face an unprecedented nutrition crisis and are at risk of death from preventable causes.

Taking necessary measures to tackle the secondary effects of COVID-19 on food security and malnutrition will require a rights-based approach, which should guide the UK Government’s current and future policies and programmes on nutrition....

Nutrition for Growth: ICAN UK's Recommendations to the UK Government

16 October 2020

Nearly half of all deaths of children under five are attributable to undernutrition. Malnutrition is a hurdle right at the start of a child’s development. The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to slow progress and risks pushing more children into malnourishment. Despite a strong position as a global leader in tackling malnutrition, the UK government’s current commitment to nutrition expires in 2020.

This document is the International Coalition for Advocacy on Nutrition (ICAN) UK's...

Invest in nutrition to ensure children meet their potential, say UK public

15 October 2020

A recent poll found that the majority of the UK public support calls for the UK Government to step up in the fight against malnutrition. The poll comes on World Food Day, as charities urgently press the Government to renew their commitments to tackle global malnutrition, which are set to expire at the end of this year.

Malnutrition contributes to 45% of all under-5 deaths worldwide. It is estimated that 487 more children per day could die of undernutrition in 2020 than was predicted...

Polio: A Proper Goodbye

7 July 2020

The world is on the verge of eradicating polio completely, but it is important that we do not become complacent and allow a resurgence of polio to occur.

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant life-saving polio immunisation efforts have been halted, despite the fact that many countries were already at risk of the disease returning. However, this can, and must be prevented, and the global eradication effort also presents a unique opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in the fight against...

Seizing the Opportunity: Recommendations for Gavi 5.0

30 June 2020

After the success of the Global Vaccine Summit 2020, we turn our attention to Gavi 5.0, which between 2021-2025 will aim to immunise an additional 300 million children with an emphasis of reaching children left furthest behind.

To maximise the impact of Gavi 5.0, we require renewed and improved policies on equity, transition, CSO engagement and access, whilst making tangible commitments to ensuring the immunisation lies at heart of efforts to strengthen Primary Health Care (...
