National Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition

National Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition (Najmah) was established under the leadership of Her Royal Highness Princess Basma in 2004 to support government programmes in combating hunger and enhancing food security in Jordan.

Najmah spans a wide national partnership among government, civil society and private sector organizations and is the first hunger alliance body from an Arab country to join the International Alliance Against Hunger (IAH) which aims to contribute towards the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goal of halving the rate of hunger and poverty worldwide by 2015.

The alliance which is hosted by JOHUD, works with the Ministry of Agriculture, the World Food Programme (WFP), the Agricultural Credit Corporation and the Food and Agriculture Organization among others in formulating policies and projects.


We are united by a common aim: to tackle the unacceptable scourge of hunger. By your actions you demonstrate your belief, that in a world of extraordinary wealth creation and accumulation, today it is unacceptable that almost 800 million people still suffer from chronic hunger.
