Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment to 2020
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).
Nutrition specific, 2017:
Disbursements: CHF 13,500,000
Nutrition Sensitive, 2017:
Disbursements: CHF 1,000,000
Collectively the nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive funds almost meet the annual requirement to achieve the 5-year target.
