Nutrition: The key to unlocking UK aid's impact

23 January 2020

In 2018, 5.3 million children under the age of five died, with undernutrition being the a key cause in nearly half those deaths. At the same time, low- and middle-income countries are wintessing a rise in child overweight and obesity. One in three children globally suffers from one or more forms of the triple-burden of malnutrition - undernutrition, mirconutrient deficiencies, and overweight and obesity.

A Quick Guide to Brick by Brick: Accelerating Progress on Global Health

The UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage is just around the corner, and it couldn’t come at a more opportune time. Progress is stalling or not happening fast enough in many critical areas of global health and, in many cases, our approach isn’t holistic enough, working in siloes and neglecting key interventions like nutrition that make our interventions less impactful and less sustainable.

Leaving no one behind? Considering the impact of donor transition

19 June 2019

UK aid saves millions of lives each year, making the world healthier, more peaceful and prosperous. As a result, more countries are moving from low- to middle-income status. Transition is the process whereby donors reduce or change the type of support they provide to a country, often based on economic indicators. But these indicators don’t take health standards, inequality or a government’s budgetary and technical capacity into account. With multiple donors withdrawing funding simultaneously...

Brick by Brick: Accelerating Progress on Global Health

10 June 2019

While acknowledging exceptional progress on global health, RESULTS remains concerned that progress is stalling or not happening fast enough in many critical areas of health.

Malnutrition prevents vaccines from working and devastates immune systems. This can cause death, lifelong serious illness and dramatically hinders the ability for countries and communities to develop economically. The good news is that malnutrition is preventable and treatable - and 2020 will be a key moment in the fight to end it once and for all.

Health For All

31 January 2019

Universal health coverage (UHC) ensures that all people everywhere can have the quality health services they need without suffering financial hardship.

In the UK we sometimes take our National Health Service for granted, but in many countries, basic health services are too expensive for everyone to afford. Everyone should be able to get the health care they need without being pushed into poverty or giving up essentials such as food, a safe place to live and clothes.
