Milan 2017 Brazil’s Ministry of Health committed US$ 7 Million for research in food and nutrition and will announce awarded grantees in a few weeks. This commitment will support research projects to develop domestic capacity for science and innovation in the food and nutrition space. The funds will be applied towards three calls for proposals covering issues such as obesity in the different life stages, innovative and effective communication strategies in health promotion, regulation of child food advertising, labelling of food products, among others.

London 2013 Offer continued support to other countries’ SUN programs based upon our experience of tackling undernutrition through public policies that work across government and reach the very poorest. In this spirit of cross-national and technical cooperation, the government of Brazil will commit to responding to requests from countries that are fighting malnutrition and poverty and scaling up their nutrition policies by sharing experience, expertise, and knowledge in partnership both with the United Nations system and with other countries, such as India, who are in a position to provide this kind of support. We will meet again at the 68th United Nations General Assembly in 2013 with countries’ SUN programs and other international partners to agree on the mechanisms that can effectively respond to these requests. Also committed to convene a meeting alongside the Rio Olympics in 2016 to track progress on the commitments made at the Nutrition for Growth event.
