- To support a study on cognitive functioning in children with severe acute malnutrition.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $484,785 over two years to Project Peanut Butter to complete a randomized controlled trial (RCT) on the effects of reformulated ready-to-use therapeutic foods on cognitive functioning in children with severe acute malnutrition.
This follows Open Philanthropy's September 2016 grant, which helped launch the RCT, and falls within its work on scientific research, and specifically within Open Philanthropy's interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
