Our Work

The Action Against Stunting Hub is implementing innovative research to address the issue of stunting by applying a holistic ‘Whole Child’ approach. This approach aims to prevent, improve, and even reverse some key features of child stunting by considering every aspect of a child’s early development. Its focus is to understand the opportunities for intervention for the most vulnerable children in India, Indonesia, and Senegal.

Our research deliverables revolve around the local landscape and communities, including working directly with citizens, households, and the education sector and using public engagement to deliver scientific messages.

We are committed to applying our novel 'Whole Child' approach to prevent stunting and improve the health and well-being of children in low- and middle-income countries.
