The 1,000 Days partnership brings together a wide-range of partners to help create lasting improvements in maternal and child nutrition. NGO, donor, and private sector partners working across a variety of sectors—including health, agriculture and food security, water, sanitation and hygiene, economic development and gender equality—each have an opportunity to work toward better nutrition outcomes in the 1,000 day window through their priorities, practices and programming.
1,000 Days partners are dedicated to achieving measurable progress in improving nutrition for mothers and children around the globe.
The work of 1,000 Days is supported by organizations committed to realizing healthier, more productive futures for children, their families and societies across the world.

In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life.
