In 2017, the global Investment Framework for Nutrition estimated the costs to scale-up nutrition-specific interventions at the level required to achieve the World Health Assembly (WHA) targets for nutrition and outlined what the needs from the donor community would be to do so. Since then, R4D has been tracking donor disbursements to support this scale-up in order to monitor progress towards the global goals.
With a growing body of data on donor aid for nutrition, a key question arises: Is aid for nutrition targeted to countries most in need?
There are many ways of defining “need” — including nutrition burden and ability for countries to self-financing nutrition programs domestically — and R4D has been exploring ways to answer this question using data generated from R4D’s work to track progress in nutrition-specific disbursements towards the WHA targets.
