Micronutrient Global Conference 2016: Positioning Women’s Nutrition at the Centre of Sustainable Development
The Micronutrient Global Conference will take place in Cancun, Mexico 24-28 October 2016. Registration and an additional full day of Symposia will proceed the week-long program on Sunday October 23rd.
While maintaining the broad interest in all aspects of micronutrients, the theme for the MN Forum will focus on women’s nutrition.
Women are both a prime focus of nutrition interventions and key partners in the delivery of programs – for children, families and communities. The health and well-being of women and girls are, consequently, critical to achieving several of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The time has come to better understand the burden, the context and the most innovative and effective solutions to improve policy, and the design and delivery of programs, for the increased equity, survival, health and well-being of women and girls.
There is much to learn and share by bridging scientific discovery and program delivery across multiple sectors.
