Collaborating to Fight Childhood Malnutrition and Meet UN Sustainability Development Goal

An Interview with Michelle Nunn, CEO of CARE USA
Summary: 

In September 2015, countries convened at a historical UN General Assembly to launch the new 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Over the next 14 years, these 17 goals (encompassing 169 targets) will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. For these goals to be reached, everyone has to partner together to do their part: governments, private sector, NGOs, and civil society.

Amway had a voice in helping shape the goals and targets for ending hunger and eliminating malnutrition in all its forms, but that was the simple step. That voice was possible because of years of actions in using our core competencies in nutrition science and expertise to address a critical issue like childhood malnutrition.

One year after the announcement of these Sustainable Development Goals, Amway asked Michelle Nunn, president and CEO of CARE USA (one of our global partners) to reflect on the significance of these goals, as well as our unique and strong partnership.
