Meet Halima. She’s a 20-month-old girl in Mogadishu, Somalia, where years of conflict and severe drought have left millions in a state of food insecurity. When her mother, Fatuma, brought her to an Action Against Hunger treatment centre, she was suffering from life-threatening malnutrition – her skin inflamed and peeling, her hands and feet swollen, and her hair falling out. Over the course of six weeks, Halima was brought back to health.
Introducing the Gender Transformative Framework for Nutrition
We’re proud to be part of the Gender Transformative Framework for Nutrition. This new coalition of humanitarian and research partners aims to identify new approaches to nutrition programming and ensure that gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls becomes the central foundation upon which multi-sectoral responses to nutrition are built.
