Nutrition and Health
Action Against Hungers methods for identifying and rescuing populations afflicted with acute malnutrition are internationally renowned, having pioneered revolutionary nutrition products and field tested treatment protocols that have become industry standards.
Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
Every day 1,000 children die from illnesses like diarrhea, dysentery, and cholera caused by dirty water and unhygienic living conditions. We cant fight malnutrition without tackling the diseases that contribute to it. As part of our integrated approach to hunger, we are getting safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services to communities in need all over the world.
Food Security & Livelihoods
Encompassing a wide array of activities customized to meet a communitys specific needs, our programs are designed to bolster agricultural production, jumpstart local market activity, support micro-enterprise initiatives, and otherwise enhance a vulnerable communitys access to sustainable sources of food and income.
From cholera epidemics sweeping through refugee camps, to catastrophic natural disasters, to spikes in malnutrition rates brought on by drought, Action Against Hunger responds to humanitarian emergencies all over the world, delivering immediate life saving services to populations in distress.
