This year, we are working with Congress to protect funding for anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs and to pass legislation that scales up what we know works when it comes to improving the nutrition of women and children.
Last week, U.S. Reps. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Jim McGovern (D-MA) introduced H.Res.189 recognizing the importance of continued United States leadership to accelerate global progress against maternal and child malnutrition.
The resolution acknowledges that progress has been made, thanks to strong U.S. leadership and a bipartisan commitment, but more needs to be done if we are going to eliminate malnutrition. This includes support for the U.S. global nutrition strategy and increased efforts to scale up maternal and child nutrition.
