WHO Ambition and action in nutrition 2016-2025 aims to define the unique value of WHO for advancing nutrition and to focus the Organization on what it does best.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition 2016-2025 are giving a new and improved momentum to nutrition. Increasing challenges but more and stronger partnerships and institutions active in nutrition.  

With the aim to play its leadership role in this rich landscape WHO has developed “an inclusive, multi-level, fit-for-purpose nutrition strategy” with “a vision and mission for nutrition for the next ten years and an agreed set of priorities”.
