Addressing real needs: the role of implementation research in designing and operationalizing adolescent nutrition programs

20 May 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Adolescence marks a period of rapid growth with high nutritional needs. Good nutrition can fuel optimal physical and mental growth, giving adolescents the strength and focus to study, work and fully participate in their communities. Iron deficiency anaemia is the number one cause of lost disability-adjusted life years in adolescent girls (10–19 yrs) and boys (10–14 yrs) globally, but until recently little attention and limited resources have been directed towards reducing anaemia and improving adolescent nutrition among at-risk populations.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about Nutrition International’s experiences and lessons learned working with global partners to implement innovative ideas to improve adolescent health and nutrition in Asia and Africa.

Three guest speakers will highlight the critical role of implementation research in designing adolescent nutrition programs by sharing:

  • how adolescent girl’s perspectives can shape the design of nutrition integration
  • lessons learned from an adolescent nutrition program co-designed and implemented by girls
  • how to translate adolescent nutrition global guidance to program actions and policies

Following the presentations attendees will have an opportunity to pose their questions during an open discussion period.
