Donors pledged US$4.15 billion for nutrition-specific and $19 billion for nutrition-sensitive programs at the 2013 Nutrition for Growth (N4G) event. It was an essential step on the long-neglected road to support country-owned efforts to improve child nutrition. However, many of the pledges made at the London Summit are set to expire by 2020, and the world risks jeopardizing the progress made so far if global donors, governments, private sector, and civil society do not refocus and renew their pledges for 2021 and beyond. This fifth edition of the N4G scorecard presents sensible analysis of the 12 largest N4G donors and an "ask" for each for the Tokyo N4G Summit 2020.
RESULTS UK and ACTION’s new policy brief looks deeper into the country-level transition process — what planning has been done, what challenges identified, what financial gaps exist, and how changes will affect immunization systems. In this new policy briefing we see that immunization coverage rates on average are dangerously low, risks to immunization systems as funding changes are high, and plans are only likely to be partially implementable.

In the coming years, the global health financing landscape will change dramatically, and this could have significant impact on health systems and access to quality health care. In this call to action and policy briefing, ACTION, RESULTS UK, and the UN Foundation jointly highlight the main challenges with health transitions, what is driving them, and why action matters now. It also sets out what civil society can do now to help ensure transitions do not negatively impact health outcomes.

The fight to eradicate polio is led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and is supported by generous public and private donors. To fund this life-saving work, in 2013 GPEI hosted a replenishment in Abu Dhabi raising over $4 billion. In the Scorecard, ACTION analyzes donor performance in delivering on these pledges, and provides additional recommendations for pledges to GPEI in the June 2017 replenishment.
