Whatever the position, each and every employee shares the same passion for a world without malnutrition. In line with our focus on collaboration and teamwork, our professional environment is one where employees feel empowered and able to build strong relations with their colleagues. Fostering the GAIN family has led us to work more effectively and align our mission with our organizational culture.

ABOUT GAIN

Eating a balanced diet is vital for our good health and wellbeing. Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals to live, grow, and stay active. We need a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients to live healthy and productive lives. However, in many developing countries, healthy foods that are rich in nutrients, like fruits and vegetables, are often too expensive, unsafe or simply not available.

According to Global Nutrition Report, about 88% of countries suffer from two or three forms of malnutrition. Every day, 815 million people are going to bed hungry, up from 777 million in 2015. 1 in 3 people lack key micronutrients, like iron and vitamin A, needed to grow properly, live active lives, and raise a healthy family. At the same time, 2 billion adults are overweight or obese and 41 million children are overweight.

Malnutrition undermines billions of people’s health and leaves 155 million children stunted every year. Rapid population growth and climate change pose new challenges to an already broken food system. We believe the food system can be fixed by a collective global effort.

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) was launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition. Working with partners, GAIN aims at making healthier food choices more affordable, more available, and more desirable.
