Iget asked a lot what I would choose if I could only solve one problem. My answer is always malnutrition – the greatest health inequity in the world. In sub-Saharan Africa, it’s responsible for about half of all childhood deaths.

The UK, through the Department for International Development, has been a longtime leader in the global fight against malnutrition. Since 2015, British aid has reached 60 million people with nutrition services. And thanks to new scientific breakthroughs I believe we will find a way to solve the issue of malnutrition within 20 years.
