Open letter to Hillary Clinton
This framework highlights the importance of good nutrition during the 1,000 days between pregnancy and a child reaching two years of age. Its objective is to improve maternal and child health and reduce malnutrition. This in itself would be a giant step towards overcoming poverty. But in order to make this a reality, we need G20 countries to commit to this cause.
Why should they commit?
The number of dead, and permanently-damaged, children resulting from basic undernutrition in the world’s poorest countries is unacceptable, and avoidable. The 1,000 Days partnership between the US and Ireland underscores our agreed sense of urgency and priority-setting in this area.
Following the recent meeting in Washington DC, I wrote an open letter to Hillary Clinton. In it, I expressed my admiration for the work she has done with child nutrition and appealed for her continued commitment to this issue. Read the full letter.
