Food crisis and global health workshop July 14-16
Date:7/7/2009

The worldwide economic downturn has exacerbated a global food crisis that started in 2007, leading to a significant increase in the number of people who are malnourished. The Institute of Medicine will convene top experts at a three-day workshop to explore the implications of the food crisis on nutrition and health. Participants will discuss the effects of the economic crisis and escalating food prices on nutrition, country and global responses, U.S. policies, and actions to mitigate food crises now and in the future. Speakers include representatives from the World Bank, World Food Program, UN Task Force on Global Food Security Crisis, academic health centers, and organizations from Bangladesh, China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, and other countries.
