Financial commitments
Milan 2017

The Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) is committed to spend 75 to 100 million Swiss francs to breastfeeding related projects over the next five years. The funds will be used to form a multidisciplinary and collaborative research network. Through basic and translational research, the network will contribute to a robust and constantly evolving evidence base to support capacity-building and systems-strengthening within the field of breastfeeding on a global basis. FLRF is committed to building the network in recognition of the importance of breastfeeding and its relatively underfunded state – despite its designation as one of the interventions with the highest return on investment (World Bank 2017, Investment Framework for Nutrition).

Basis of assessment

Assuming a linear rate of progress, the amount disbursed in nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions in 2018 (CHF 16,624,000) is greater than the amount required to be on course by this stage (CHF 15,000,000), assuming the lower-bound target of CHF 75,000,000. The assessment is performed on 2018 data only to remain consistent with other respondents.
