The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) was launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition.

Working with partners including governments, civil society, businesses, UN agencies, and academic institutions, GAIN aims at making healthier food choices more affordable, more available, and more desirable. We aim to support and advise governments, businesses, and development partners as they build and mobilise food and nutrition plans to advance nutrition outcomes. GAIN’s purpose is to improve nutrition outcomes by improving the consumption of nutritious and safe food for all people, especially the most vulnerable.
