2016 Integrated Nutrition Conference features NM themes

On November 14-16, Catholic Relief integrated-nutrition-conferenceServices (CRS) and partners from various sectors met in Nairobi, Kenya, for the 2016 Integrated Nutrition Conference. This year’s event focused on “Responding with the Private Sector for Greater Nutrition Impact.” Participants shared tools, technologies, practices, business models, and multi-sectoral partnership strategies for improving nutritional outcomes for vulnerable populations. These themes touch upon one of the key messages of Nourishing Millions: success in nutrition depends on the cooperation of various stakeholders from government, regional and international organizations, academia, civil society, and the private sector. Reflections on the role of the private sector can be found in Chapter 3 on infant and young child feeding; Chapter 9 on obesity; and Chapter 18 on nutrition leadership.
