The Power of Nutrition

April 16, 2015 | 13:30 ET, 17:30 GMT

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.
