Will disability status for children under 5 years be collected? The inclusion of children with disabilities in the efforts to combat malnutrition is not only ethical, but imperative for aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals' leave-no-one-behind Agenda--an aspiration shared by the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement. In order to achieve global nutrition targets (SDG2), it is essential that disability status be collected on children 0-5. This allows us to disaggregate global and national nutrition data by disability to further understand the links between disability and nutrition and monitor progress for this population.
