The African Union, His Majesty King Letsie III of the Kingdom of Lesotho, the African Development Bank, the Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other partners, will launch the African Leaders For Nutrition (ALN) Continental Nutrition Accountability Scorecard on Monday 11 February 2019.

The event, under the theme “A Call for Better Advocacy and Accountability for Nutrition Investments,” will be chaired by , His Majesty King Letsie III  and African Development Bank President Dr. Akinwumi  Adesina.

The Continental Nutrition Accountability Scorecard is the latest tool produced by ALN to raise awareness and reinforce commitments by African governments to end malnutrition and promote healthy children.

This data-based advocacy tool gives an overview of how African leaders are doing on their delivery of the main nutrition indicators.

It is expected that the scorecard will increasingly be used to track Africa’s effort to halt malnutrition and its effects.
