UNITLIFE Trust Fund - Reports 


UNITLIFE is a multi-partner trust fund managed by UN Women and UNCDF. It is supported by the Government OF WHAT? to fight against chronic childhood malnutrition (stunting).

UNITLIFE is the first trust fund that leverages innovative financing solutions to fight against chronic malnutrition, one of the least known, and most underfunded diseases in the world. The Fund is focusing on women as agents of change to address chronic malnutrition. 

UNITLIFE aims to increase:


  • the availability, quality of programs and the capacity of government, non-governmental actors and development partners to provide treatments for stunting and other immediate effects of malnutrition.
  • women’s access to land and productive resources to improve the agricultural productivity, revenue and decision-making authority of women farmers. This will in turn improve their capacity to positively impact the nutritional status of children, pregnant and lactating women.


UNITLIFE’s focus on the above two priority intervention areas will enable it to contribute to 10 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 35 of the 169 SDG targets.

UNITLIFE, in particular, will directly contribute to SDG 1 (poverty), SDG 2 (food security), SDG 3 (health), SDG 4 (education), SDG 5 (gender equality), SDG 6 (water and sanitation) and SDG 10 (reduced inequality). This will be achieved through supporting programs that aim to improve childhood nutrition and women farmers’ earnings, which will contribute to reduced poverty and hunger, improved access to health and sanitation, enhanced cognitive capacity and school performance, and the advancement of women’s empowerment.

The Fund will also have a significant impact on SDG 8 (inclusive and sustainable growth), SDG 13 (climate change) and SDG 16 (peace and security).
