Join us and get updates on CONIN’s campaigns, achievements, and activities.
CONIN is a non-profit organization founded by Dr. Abel Pascual Albino in the province of Mendoza, Argentina, on September 4, 1993. Albino took the model of CONIN Chile, created by its founder Dr. Fernando Mönckeberg. His fight against child malnutrition turned Chile into a country with high health standards, low child mortality, and human and social development indicators higher than those of countries with similar per capita income.
The main goal of Fundación CONIN is to end child malnutrition in Argentina, starting in Mendoza, and then extending to the rest of Latin America and the world.
We want you to get to know us better. For over 27 years we have been working in Argentina, Latin America, and the world to end child malnutrition. The goal is to guarantee the optimal growth and development of children, while preserving their physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being, and thus achieve equality of opportunities.
Our work is aimed at reducing the causes of malnutrition and accompanying the family through assistance and education. We seek to strengthen the protective factors and look for strategies to minimize or eradicate the risk factors that exist in the family and the child’s environment. We invite you to get to know us.
It is a nutritional state in which a deficiency of energy, protein, and other nutrients causes measurable adverse effects on tissue/organ composition as well as function and clinical outcome. An adequate nutrition and a supportive environment are necessary from conception and during the first two years of life, to achieve comprehensive growth and development. After this period, the effects of untreated malnutrition are, for the most part, irreversible.
CONIN has a network of more than 110 franchised centers in Argentina, assisting more than 4,000 children per week.
The collaboration of donors, sponsors, and volunteers is essential for this project, this dream, to achieve, as it did in Chile, the goal of ending child malnutrition.
