Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)


The National Workforce Nutrition Alliance

Businesses in low-middle-income countries report losses ranging from approximately $130 billion to $850 billion a year due to malnutrition-related productivity issues. This indicates that malnutrition in any form has consequences beyond an individual’s health and well-being, significantly impacting economic performance. With a massive working-age population, India has a golden opportunity to build a healthy and thriving workforce. Recognizing this potential, GAIN India and IMPAct4Nutrition (I4N), a UNICEF initiative, have joined forces to launch the National Workforce Nutrition Alliance. This alliance aims to provide technical support to the businesses to design, implement and adopt workforce nutrition initiatives to improve nutrition outcomes for their employees.

This initiative will help solve existing challenges regarding nutrition in workplaces, and thereby build a sustainable model of the Workforce Alliance on a national level. It highlights the critical role employers can play in tackling malnutrition, ultimately contributing to the nation’s economic growth and development
