EU and Save the Children fight against child hunger

The European Commission and Save the Children agreed to join forces and speed up the fight against child hunger and under-nutrition, with the purpose of reducing the number of children who are stunted by at least 7 million by 2025.
Thus, the European Commission joins and supports the Save the Children’s EVERY ONE Campaign on child survival. EVERY ONE is Save the Children’s biggest ever global campaign, campaigning to make stopping children and mothers dying a political. The overall aim for the campaign is to have helped achieve Millennium Development Goal 4 on new-born and child survival. This means also addressing the health and wellbeing of mothers and accelerating progress towards Millennium Development Goal 5.
Also, EU Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs announced that in 2013 the EU will launch a new policy paper to present its approach to addressing under-nutrition and gain the support of all EU Member States in what he names the ‘fight against the biggest scourge of the 21st century – child hunger’.
Around 170 million children in the world suffer from stunting and 3 million children die every year due to food insecurity, poor health and inappropriate child care.
