Malnutrition, in every form, presents significant threats to human health. Today the world faces a double burden of malnutrition that includes both undernutrition and overweight, especially in developing countries.
Hunger and inadequate nutrition contribute to early deaths for mothers, infants and young children, and impaired physical and brain development in the young.
At the same time, growing rates of overweight and obesity worldwide are linked to a rise in chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes - conditions that are life-threatening and very difficult to treat in places with limited resources and already overburdened health systems.
In light of these challenges and trends NHD aims at building and implementing a science-based, comprehensive, integrated and action/policy-oriented "Nutrition Agenda" at global, regional and country levels that addresses the whole spectrum of nutrition problems towards attaining the Millennium Development Goals and other nutrition-related international commitments, including the prevention the diet-related chronic diseases.
Towards this aim, NHD's core function is to provide Member States and the international community with science-based norms, standards, recommendations and technical guidance. It is also to provide operational and political support to Member States for building their capacity in identifying problems and best policy options, implementing the required nutrition interventions, monitoring progress and assessing impact.
NHD acts globally and internationally to raise awareness and build alliances, networks and partnerships to support it's objectives.
