Our Leadership

The ALN initiative aims to stimulate political leadership and engagement set forth by African Development Bank President Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina, former Ghanaian President Hon. John Kufuor, Mr. Kofi Annan (1938-2018), the late former Secretary General of the United Nations and its institutional co-founders by fostering and nurturing the ALN initiative itself. It will also amplify ongoing nutrition efforts in Africa at the highest levels.

The initiative leverages on the voices of its high-level Champions to amplify and elevate nutrition on the continent.  The initiative’s efforts are guided by the ALN Champions while strategic advice to the ALN secretariat is provided by a group of renowned experts and advisors from diverse sectors in nutrition and socio-economic development.
