Building upon the unprecedented 2013 Nutrition for Growth summit in London, at which $4 billion was committed to high-impact nutrition programs, a global coalition of advocates have come together to keep the pressure on governments and donors to scale up funding for nutrition.

The International Coalition for Advocacy on Nutrition (ICAN) includes a broad array of international NGOs, advocacy organizations and foundations united around the shared goal to save and improve lives through better nutrition.

Through ICAN, organizations can collaborate on resource mobilization and advocacy efforts focused on securing significant new political and financial commitments in the lead up to the 2nd Nutrition for Growth summit, expected to take place in in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil alongside the 2016 Summer Olympics.
