Landmark report sets priorities to address malnutrition
Date:9/26/2013

oor nutrition causes a range of serious and costly health problems, from impaired cognitive and physical development to illness, disease, and death. The implications extend far beyond health outcomes, affecting workforce capacity, political stability, and economic progress.

By collaboratively activating the Agenda, stakeholdersincluding researchers, funders, implementation specialists, and policy makershave the potential to change the global nutrition landscape; ultimately tipping the scales from malnutrition to optimal nutrition. To this end, nutrition science researchers will convene at The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York Academy of Sciences on September 26th to start activation of the global research agenda through a full day of specialized working groups.

"This is a critical time for nutrition," says Dr. Mandana Arabi, founding executive director of The Sackler Institute. "With billions of dollars in new funding recently committed during the pre-G8 'Nutrition for Growth' event, there is a strong need for high-level, coordinated, and collaborative research to provide the evidence base for country-level program implementation. By identifying and filling research gaps and then applying this knowledge to create evidence-based interventions, the global nutrition science community can ensure that available funds are used efficiently and effectively, thereby achieving real and lasting impact."
