Where is the anaemia target for young children? The missing WHA nutrition target. Perspectives on home fortification for children under five
18 November 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
The Nutrition for Growth Summit is an opportunity to define a clear vision for where donors and countries need to invest to eliminate malnutrition. Our solution-focused virtual side events will look at what nutrition priorities should be to drive country-led, evidence-based, fully financed nutrition programs for the future.
Hosted by the Home Fortification Technical Advisory Group – co-chaired by Nutrition International and UNICEF – this event will dive into why it’s imperative for planners, speakers and donors at N4G to call for the World Health Assembly to set anaemia targets for infants and young children and promote investment in evidence-based interventions to improve the iron status of young children. This event will include valuable participation from the Nutrition Scaling Working Group.
