Women Nutrition: Resilience and Recovery on the Road to 2030
The Micronutrient Forum and the Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Consortium are pleased to present Women Nutrition: Resilience and Recovery on the Road to 2030, a session during the World Health Organization Food Systems Dialogues: Health Talks against the backdrop of the World Health Assembly and Food Systems Summit Dialogues. Join us on June 8 for an hour-long session with short presentations and an interactive dialogue moderated by Anna Lartey, Professor of Nutrition at the University of Ghana.
Women’s roles in families and communities make them key drivers of development. They are caretakers – of children, the ill and the elderly, water, food, and shelter-, as well as food producers and income earners. Good nutrition is foundational to women’s wellbeing and resilience made painfully clear by the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, collective efforts have been mainly directed to child nutrition and have failed to boldly improve women’s nutrition.
In the lead up to the U.N Food Systems Summit and Tokyo’s Nutrition for Growth Summit, this session will highlight the urgency for new and SMART commitments across food and health systems to build women’s health and resilience – for women, their families, and the broader social and economic development of nations.
