Our Work in Health

Nutrition

At World Vision, we envision a world where every child has the opportunity for life in all its fullness. Good nutrition is an essential foundation for health and development, yet malnutrition continues to be the world’s most serious health problem and the single-biggest contributor to child mortality. As the largest private humanitarian organisation, World Vision has made addressing malnutrition a top priority. Our goal is to ensure that mothers and children are well nourished across our global programming reach.
