Though nutrition has increasingly moved into the global policy spotlight as a stand-alone issue, with national governments and civil society alike taking up the call to invest in nutrition programming, the world is currently not on track to meet nutrition targets set out by the World Health Assembly. With continued focus and efforts to both invest in proven interventions and enhance data systems, progress can be accelerated. The existing body of evidence points towards key interventions that can have a marked impact on reducing malnutrition related morbidity and mortality in mothers and children however, clear gaps remain in the evidence base, a selection of which are highlighted here. With the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) comes a challenge to rethink our approach to taking action on nutrition issues a push to think more concretely about the crucial importance of the social determinants of health, as well as the complex political, social and ecological systems that influence an individual’s nutritional status. Within the SDGs, which frame our collective development agenda in an aspirational and holistic manner, it will be important to maintain a
clear focus on nutrition, so as not to lose momentum towards a world where everyone is able to meet their growth and development potential, supported by a strong nutritional foundation.
