Welcome to our new knowledge sharing initiative

Dear colleagues and friends,
You are receiving the first issue of UNICEF: Working to Improve Nutrition at Scale, a knowledge dissemination initiative to share UNICEF’s advocacy, policy, programme, and evidence generation work on Maternal and Child Nutrition around the world.
The first issue of UNICEF: Working to Improve Nutrition at Scale brings to you a series of advocacy materials developed by the Global Breastfeeding Collective, a partnership led by UNICEF and WHO that brings together more than 20 organizations around one goal: increase attention and investment on breastfeeding worldwide. The materials include:

  • A Call to Action that calls upon governments, development partners and civil society to focus on seven priorities for action to improve breastfeeding rates worldwide.
  • The Investment Case for Breastfeeding, which highlights why breastfeeding is an investment in children’s survival, growth and development and in human capital formation.
  • The Global Breastfeeding Scorecard, a first ever report that evaluates and compares 194 low, middle, and high-income countries on the seven priorities for action on breastfeeding.

All materials and more can be found at We encourage you to make good use of these materials during World Breastfeeding Week (… and beyond!) to make the case for increased attention to breastfeeding, one of the smartest investments a country can make.
I sincerely hope that UNICEF: Working to Improve Nutrition at Scale will be useful to you. We are intending to send it to you about once a month. If you would like to add your colleagues to this mailing list please send an email to If you would like to unsubscribe please click here.
Read and share!
