Every day, poor nutrition robs girls and women of their full health and potential, denying them their power to grow, to learn, to work, to thrive. It’s a domino effect: beginning before birth, carried into childhood and passed on potentially through motherhood. The HMHB Consortium accelerates collective action to break this vicious cycle. Together, we can power women’s nutrition, specifically maternal nutrition, for promising futures.
The HMHB Consortium will play its role as an advocate, convener, consensus builder and a knowledge broker, to support its members and other stakeholders across the different stages of MMS implementation.
HMHB grew out of the 2019 Goalkeepers Accelerator of the same name that brought together 10 partners from the private sector, academia, civil society and the UN who have committed to increasing demand, supply and delivery of high-coverage MMS.
HMHB brings together stakeholders, including country representatives, research and knowledge institutions, non-governmental organization (NGOs), technical organizations, UN agencies, private sector stakeholders, and funders to work together to raise awareness, trigger policy change and accelerate adoption of MMS. We drive collective action, amplify advocacy, synthesize information, and create public access to information on MMS activities, research, and policies.
