Progress is Palpable in the Fight Against Malnutrition
Last month, in collaboration with UNICEF, Action Against Hunger organized an exciting panel discussion Reinforcing Momentum to End Acute Malnutrition. Part of a global series of events during the UN General Assembly period that raised the profile of nutrition with global leaders, this panel explored how to effectively and sustainably tackle acute malnutrition. The panel, moderated by Matt Aubry, Action Against Hunger’s External Relations Director, drew in over 70 participants, fundamental in the fight against acute malnutrition. Panelists included:
- Laura Caulfield, Professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
- Félicité Tchibindat, UNICEF, West and Central Africa Regional Nutrition Advisor
- Saul Guerrero, Head of Technical Development at Action Against Hunger-UK
- Melrose Tucker, Health and Nutrition Program Manager at Focus 1000, a nutrition and health focused organization in Sierra Leone
What we are doing right
Since malnutrition can affect everyone, all partners must commit to being key players in its prevention and treatment.
“The nutrition and health sectors must work together, as malnutrition is a vicious cycle.”–Melrose Tucker, Health and Nutrition Program Manager at Focus 1000
