The fund is governed by a multi-stakeholder board, including the permanent seat members – the Government of France and UN Women

As part of UNITLIFE’s strategy, UNITLIFE will select a project which also includes three cross-cutting priorities: innovation, sustainability and integration (or colocation) with interventions addressing other determinants of malnutrition to maximize impact.
