The Power of Nutrition is a new UK-based charity dedicated to unlocking up to $1 billion of new private and public financing to improve child nutrition.

Join us for a panel discussion with ministers of finance together with senior leadership from the Power of Nutrition partner organizations - the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, UBS Optimus Foundation, the UK Department of International Development, UNICEF and the World Bank Group - as they introduce the new fund and discuss the importance of investing in nutrition, the challenges countries are facing, and concrete steps towards scaling up high-impact programming for child nutrition.

One of the mechanisms through which the Power of Nutrition will operate is through a new World Bank Group multi-donor trust fund for which eligible countries can apply.
