The Aliko Dangote Foundation has committed to tackling malnutrition in the worst affected parts of Nigeria with a pledge to invest $100m in the cause.

The pledge was made by the foundation at the recently-concluded Global Nutrition Summit 2017, held in Milan, Italy, which brought together governments, international agencies, foundations, civil society organisations and businesses to speed up the global response to malnutrition, a fundamental cause of nearly half of all global child deaths.

The summit is the global forum of the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2026). And this year’s edition was held in close partnership with a number of international stakeholders, including the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development, World Health Organisation, Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the International Coalition on Advocacy for Nutrition.

The summit was able to realise $3.4bn as the governments of Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Zambia all made commitments to expand their nutrition programmes, according to the organisers.
