Table 5 Model sub-analysis projections for the number of countries reaching the SDG 2.2 targets. Each row represents the maximum impact scenario, where interventions are scaled up to 95% coverage in each country over a five-year period. The main analysis row is the same as the results presented above, and other rows are sensitivity analyses

From: Ending malnutrition in all its forms requires scaling up proven nutrition interventions and much more: a 129-country analysis
