CORE Group has joined Member Organizations Concern Worldwide, Helen Keller International, and more in signing on to the Call to Action: Nutrition in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. As the post-2015 development agenda negotiations move to the intergovernmental phase, we have the opportunity to shape a framework that aims to end hunger and reduce malnutrition in all its forms. Now is a key moment to push a set of common messages around the need for a clearer and stronger set of nutrition targets and indicators in the post-2015 development agenda.
Almost 16 years ago, CORE Group came into existence to serve as a neutral convener and knowledge manager for grantees of the Child Survival and Health Grants Program. Since then, CORE Group has evolved to beome a global leader for community health, with over 100 Members and Associates and multiple worldwide partners.
