Hunger is a predictable, preventable, and treatable illness.

Ninety percent of children who complete treatment are cured – yet less than one in four are currently able to access care.

Every year, more than three million children die from hunger and related causes.

Saving their lives starts with a simple band.

The band is a nutrition thermometer: a parent or health worker wraps it around a child’s upper arm and the band’s color shows their nutrition status – green indicates good health, but yellow or red means the child is malnourished.

Malnutrition Detection Band

With this simple tool, parents everywhere can quickly and easily see when their child needs urgent medical care at a clinic. Our highly-effective treatment can bring malnourished children back to full health in as little as 45 days.
