In January 2013, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from Muhammed Ayub, the Senior Chief Nutrition, Planning and Development Division in the Prime Minister’s Office. To support the government’s multistakeholder efforts, engagement with the private sector began in 2015 with the National Fortification Alliance as a key contributor. Today, with support from the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, the World Food Programme and other partners, Pakistan’s SUN Business Network continues to grow from strength to strength in new areas and with new partnerships.
