Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is a foundation based in Switzerland focused on reducing world malnutrition.


GAIN implements a wide range of programs, only one of which—its universal salt iodization (USI) program—has been evaluated by GiveWell. In GiveWell's assessment, the cost-effectiveness range of salt iodization is very close to that of their priority programs,[1] though they are less certain about the cost-effectiveness of GAIN's USI program.[2]

 USI was a GiveWell standout charity from 2014 to 2021, when that designation was discontinued. USI is also one of the three organizations focused on education recommended by Founders Pledge[3] and is featured by The Life You Can Save in their list of "best charities".[4]

As of July 2022, GAIN has received $1.1 million in grants from Open Philanthropy.[5]
