UNITLIFE is a multi-partner trust fund established by UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and UN Women. It is the only UN fund that leverages innovative financing solutions for the fight against chronic malnutrition, one of the least known, and most underfunded diseases in the world. Chronic malnutrition affects 1 in every 5 children globally, with lifelong irreversible consequences on their physical growth, brain development and immune system. 



  1. Invests in the nutrition, climate-smart agriculture, and women empowerment nexus as an entry point to improve nutritional outcomes for children and reduce chronic malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies
  2. Prioritizes projects that are innovative, sustainable and integrated and/or collocated with complementary interventions addressing other determinants of chronic malnutrition


UNITLIFE’s updated model was announced by the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, during the One Planet Summit on 12 December 2017 in Paris. UNITLIFE constitutes the 6th commitment of this Summit. 


UNITLIFE contributes to 11 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 2 “Zero Hunger”, SDG 5 “Gender Equality”, and SDG 13 “Climate Action”. 


UNITLIFE’s Secretariat is hosted by UNCDF
