In recent years, the world has seen unprecedented attention and political commitment to addressing malnutrition. As nutrition rapidly rises on the global agenda, guidance is urgently needed on how to design, implement, and evaluate nutrition-enhancing policies and interventions. Nourishing Millions: Stories of Change in Nutrition brings together the most intriguing stories about improving nutrition from the past five decades. These stories provide insight into what works in nutrition, what does not, and the factors that contribute to success.

The launch event featured highlights from the book followed by discussion on how to scale up as well as accelerate progress on nutrition. 

This book is edited by Stuart Gillespie, Judith Hodge, Sivan Yosef, and Rajul Pandya-Lorch.
