WHAT WE DO
With an innovative perspective that focuses on consumption and demand, the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) seeks to realized the enormous potential of agricultural development to make significant contributions to improving the nutrition and health of people worldwide.
As CGIAR’s only research program on nutrition and health, A4NH focuses on the system-level outcome of improving food and nutrition security for health. The program is led by the International Food Policy Research Institute and managed by a group of four other CGIAR Research Centers and two academic institutions.
A4NH works across five flagship research programs, addressing some of the most challenging nutrition and health concerns we face today.
WHERE WE WORK
A4NH research concentrates on five focus countries, with work extending to more than two dozen others. Our research informs policymakers and stakeholders in these countries and provides lessons adaptable to other places and contexts.
