In February 2012, the Republic of Madagascar joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from Jean François, the National Coordinator for the Office of National Nutrition. By 2015, a private sector and research platform was in the process of being validated and today, the Madagascar SUN Business Network is emerging with 8 members, a dedicated national coordinator, support from the World Food Programme and expects to launch officially in early 2019.
