For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have led the global fight against hunger. We save the lives of children and their families. We are there for them before and after disaster strikes. We enable people to provide for themselves, see their children grow up strong, and build prosperous communities. Today, AAH is an important referent in nutrition information systems, CMAM-related operational research, support in emergencies and development contexts, and in 2019, AAH reached over 17 million people. In the UK we have grown well over the last 20 years, increasing our income and staff numbers accordingly. We are now placed to continue this growth and meet our ambitions for 2021 and beyond.
As part of the legacy of the No Wasted Lives Project which ended in 2020, Action Against Hunger UK invested in and accelerated the roll-out of the best approaches to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition. This included ensuring that operational research is supported by robust costing and cost-effectiveness analysis.
