Who we are?

The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement supports country-level action to end all forms of malnutrition. Since its launch in 2010 by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, 65 SUN countries and four Indian States have united through a shared commitment to scaling up nutrition action. To support SUN Countries to develop a multi-stakeholder approach to nutrition, four networks were established – the SUN Business Network (SBN), SUN Civil Society Network (CSN), SUN Donor Network (SDN) and UN Nutrition (UNN); these Networks together with the global SUN Movement Secretariat (SMS) make up the SUN Global Support System (GSS).
Established in 2012 and co-convened by the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) the SBN shares its vision with the overall SUN movement; By 2030, a world free of all forms of malnutrition. As the only dedicated platform that convenes the private sector around nutrition across SUN countries, the SBN’s overall vision is to reduce malnutrition in all its forms by bringing together the private sector, government, and other stakeholders to take joint, practical actions to accelerate private sector contributions to improved nutrition.
