The Alliance is an interagency institutional initiative that will facilitate the coordination of international cooperation efforts and resources to promote, agree on, implement, monitor, and evaluate effective evidence-based multisectoral interprogrammatic interventions that recognize the multiple causes with a multicausal approach to malnutrition. It will provide an opportunity for planning on the basis of lessons learned and current country activities. It is not intended to compete with, much less eliminate, replace, or disregard other initiatives such as the Interagency Strategic Consensus for the Reduction of Neonatal Morbidity in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Regional Interagency Task Force for the Reduction of Maternal Mortality and Morbidity, the Alliance for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health, the Faces, Voices, and Places Initiative, the Latin America and the Caribbean without Hunger Initiative, or the Towards the Eradication of Child Undernutrition Initiative, but rather, to reinforce or improve them, providing a useful framework for integrating and consolidating efforts, together with some complementary conceptual and strategic values.
