Emerging Financing Mechanisms: Where is the Value for Nutrition? A Specific Focus on GFF
This report assesses how the Global Financing Facility (GFF) can help fill the nutrition-financing gap. It analyses how early investments made by the GFF support nutrition efforts in countries, and finds that the degree of nutrition focus in GFF projects varies significantly. The authors recommend nutrition CSOs and the health community to advocate for a strong 2018 GFF replenishment, and the World Bank to ensure nutrition remains high on the agenda by providing more incentives to countries to prioritize nutrition. At the same time, governments should more systematically include interventions that have been proven to work in improving nutrition, in regular consultation with CSOs.
