Founded in 1979, Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger.

Our mission is to save the lives of severely malnourished children while helping communities become self-sufficient. Recognized as a world leader in the fight against malnutrition, Action Against Hunger has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for almost four decades, combating hunger in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. With more than 8,000 staff in nearly 50 countries, our programs in nutrition, food security, livelihoods, water, sanitation, and hygiene reach more than 20 million people each year.

Since 2007, Action Against Hunger Canada has provided leadership on the development and implementation of one of the world’s leading nutrition survey methodologies: SMART (Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transition). The project has built the capacity of over 2,000 health workers around the world on how to apply this methodology when conducting nutrition and mortality surveys.

The University of Toronto is a world-leading research-intensive public university, ranked third globally on scientific paper performance (after Harvard and Johns Hopkins), among the world’s top ten universities for “graduate employability”, and as global a top 30 research institution attracting over $1B in annual research funds. The University brings cutting-edge knowledge and expertise in research, provide technical direction and supervise faculty and trainees from will draw on faculty and trainees from the Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Medicine (Canada’s largest) with the Joannah and Brian Lawson Centre for Child Nutrition, and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (Canada’s largest, ranked first nationally and 3rd among countries with universal health coverage).  The University of Toronto ranks 5th globally for public health generates the largest number (>300) of the top 10% most highly cited publications in the field of Public Health, Environment and Occupational Health among the top 15 Canadian research-intensive universities.

Ultimately, this collaboration between Action Against Hunger and the University of Toronto leverages complementary expertise and capacity to empower communities and individuals to address gender inequality and provide useful knowledge in fighting malnutrition through a gender-transformative approach across interventions and institutionally.
