Our impact in numbers
COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on life as we know it. It's hit vulnerable communities where we work hard; not only as a health crisis, but also a socio-economic one. Read about our COVID-19 response in Bangladesh here.
The WASH & Nutrition Nexus
When we would scale up nutrition-specific interventions, research suggests that the prevalence of childhood stunting, also known as chronic undernutrition, can be reduced by 20% (1). Even though this reduction of 20% means that 33 million children will be prevented from being stunted, it also means that in 80% of the stunted cases, an exclusive focus on nutrition only is not enough.
Shifting away from traditional input-based payments, Max Payment-by-Results (MaxPbR) links payments to our implementation partners to predefined results.

Exciting news: we have an (almost) entirely new Max Foundation board for the upcoming years! We'd love to introduce them to you. Below you can find a little description of each boardmember, alongside their photo. Want to get in touch? Head over to the 'our team' section of our website to find their details.Read the full report
