ACCELERATING ANAEMIA ACTION
Progress on the Nutrition for Growth Commitment and Call for Expressions of Interest
Thursday 19 May 2022 | 3-4:30 pm CET | 9-10:30 am ET
Strong leadership and coordination are needed at global, regional, and community levels to address anaemia from multiple perspectives and channels. Working with a broad selection of partners and stakeholders, such as governments, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, and philanthropic foundations, WHO is leading the development of a Global Action Plan on the prevention and management of anaemia. WHO and UNICEF are co-leading the establishment a new Alliance for Anaemia Actions, a cross-sector platform driven by community, national and global stakeholders to accelerate action toward reducing the anaemia burden in women and children.
Please join this session to:
- Update global, regional and national stakeholders on progress made towards the Nutrition for Growth commitments, the development of the Global Action Plan on Anaemia, and the establishment of the Alliance for Anaemia Actions.
- Emphasize the need and benefits of a multisectoral approach to address the growing challenges of preventing and managing anaemia globally.
- Galvanize the interest of global, regional, and national actors to support the Global Action Plan, the Alliance, and one of its workstreams.
