About the MN Forum Global Conference
While maintaining the broad interest in all aspects of micronutrients, the 2016 Conference will highlight the importance of placing women’s nutrition at the center of sustainable development.
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, in addition to being intrinsically valuable, are also critical to achieving several of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The program tracks will cover all population groups, while specifically highlighting women and girls:
Track 1: Measuring and interpreting information on micronutrient status and program coverage.
Track 2: Effects of micronutrient interventions on indicators and functional outcomes.
Track 3: Scaling up micronutrient interventions in vulnerable populations: Bridging the gaps between evidence and implementations.
Track 4: Transforming the enabling environment to forge a future for micronutrients – what will it take?
We look forward to welcoming you in Mexico in October!
