I would like to bring to your attention the opportunity to contribute to the online public consultation for the draft of the Global Action Plan (GAP) on child wasting. Please note that the deadline for contributions is 9 February 2020 23.59hrs CET. 

https://www.who.int/news-room/articles-detail/online-public-consultation---draft-of-the-global-action-plan-(gap)-on-child-wasting

The draft was put together by FAO, UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP and WHO to develop a common vision of what it will take to achieve the WHA and SDG targets on wasting reduction, as well as actions to increase coverage of treatment services. The plan is to have the endorsed GAP, along with immediate UN actions to support it, publicly available in early March 2020. Discussions to identify commitments and actions by governments and other key stakeholders will continue throughout 2020, with the aim to release the action plan at the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit, to be held in December 2020.

The fight against malnutrition remains a real burden for developing countries. In most Developing Countries, multisectorality has existed and still exists, but the problem of malnutrition persists. In this multisectoriality, each structure seeks to fill its personal indicators rather than to work for the improvement of the common result. The case of several countries (Miabi Health Zone, DR Congo with several partners for 11% of malnourished children, Ivory Coast) is palpable.

Faced with this situation, we recommend intersectorality where each structure acts according to the objectives of the other in order to achieve the common result for the well-being of all.
