Rep. Young Kim

Washington, DC – Today, the House of Representatives passed the Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act of 2021 (H.R. 4693), a bipartisan bill to advance targeted, evidence-based interventions for prevention and treatment of global malnutrition programs at USAID.  

U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-39) joined House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul (TX-10), Chair Gregory Meeks (NY-05) and Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (PA-10) to introduce this bill in July 2021.  

“Over one in every five children around the world suffers from malnutrition, which endangers livelihoods and costs the global economy up to $3.5 trillion each year,” said Kim. “As a mother of four and new grandmother, my heart breaks to see children suffer. I’m proud to help lead the Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act of 2021 with Ranking Member McCaul, Chair Meeks and Rep. Houlahan to help USAID better target evidence nutrition interventions to ensure our resources go to those who need them most and are used effectively. I thank my colleagues for coming together to address global malnutrition and will continue to do all I can on the Africa, Global Health, and Global Human Rights Subcommittee to support children in need.”
