A world free from all forms of malnutrition where all people achieve health and well-being.
To work with Member States and partners to ensure universal access to effective nutrition actions and to healthy and sustainable diets. To do this WHO:
- uses its convening power to help set, align and advocate for priority actions to improve nutrition;
- develops evidence-informed guidance based on robust scientific and ethical frameworks;
- supports the adoption of guidance and implementation of effective actions;
- monitors and evaluates policy and programme implementation and nutrition outcomes.
Three core functions and six priorities
- Shape the narrative of the global nutrition agenda
- Leverage changes in relevant non-health sectors to improve and mainstream nutrition
- Leverage the implementation of effective nutrition policies and programmes in all settings, including in situations of emergencies and crisis
- Define healthy sustainable diets and guide the identification and use of effective nutrition actions
- Improve the availability of nutrition actions in health systems
- Support the establishment of targets and monitoring systems for nutrition
