Guatemala faces alarming levels of chronic malnutrition, which leaves half of the country’s boys and girls age 3–59 months stunted. With the help of FANTA and partners, the Government of Guatemala used an innovative financial approach to determine the cost of a set of critical programs to address malnutrition. The approach, called activity-based costing, equipped the government to better plan and budget for nutrition and is driving efforts to advocate for more funding for nutrition. These efforts include a video that explains activity-based costing and calls the government, civil society, and municipalities to action.
