About Us:

We are a coalition of agencies with decades of experience in nutrition and gender programming. We are all committed to advancing gender-transformative approaches in our nutrition efforts.

The key purpose of the coalition is to develop and promote a gender-transformative framework to support improved gender analysis, design and evaluation of nutrition approaches and interventions for gender equality and to identify research/evidence generation priorities.

Through our collective expertise in research, technical programming, and advocacy, we aim to ensure that the gender-transformative framework for nutrition is evidence-informed, beneficial for programming and humanitarian response, and endorsed by major global nutrition bodies.
