The June 2023 Newsletter highlighted food policies on hidden hunger and food fortification for good reason; the landmark resolution at the 76th World Health Assembly (WHA) on accelerating efforts to prevent micronutrient deficiencies through safe and effective food fortification was welcome ; and the Anaemia Action Alliance coming together with a transformative agenda to mobilise global leaders, experts, and advocates worldwide across diverse sectors to accelerate and coordinate multi-sectoral actions on anaemia. Enabling evidence-based action to improve diet quality, the Global Diet Quality Project's data of 56 countries with ready-to-use tools, brought us one step closer to reducing barriers to data collection.
We marked World Food Safety Day and World MSME Day, and showcased the pivotal role of small and medium enterprises in fostering individual and collective action in ensuring healthy and nutritious foods for all in Africa and the world.
Bringing together private and public sector actors for systemic changes in Food Systems Transformation, it was exciting to interact with workshop participants from across the world, at the Business Fights Poverty Global Summit hosted by Nutrition Connect, IFSS Portal and Glocolearning.
Please let us know your thoughts on these current events and how you envision their impact on your nutrition-focused work. We look forward to finding ways to support each other.
