Our Work with Therapeutic Food
UNICEF helps children achieve a healthy diet and treats those suffering from malnutrition.Last year, UNICEF:
- Had 600 nutrition experts working in 121 countries.
- Along with partners, treated 3.4 million children for severe malnutrition.
- Fed 2.5 million malnourished children during humanitarian emergencies.
- Helped over 8 million children get nutrient supplements.
Donors help UNICEF procure more Ready-to-use-Therapeutic-Food (RUTF), a miracle treatment for severe malnutrition, than anyone else in the world—80% of the global supply.
