Sustainable Food Environment to Accelerate Maternal and Child Health Improvement in Stunting Reduction
Friday, 29 November 2019. 13.30 – 15.30. Ballroom

The Program:
In 2012, the World Health Assembly Resolution 65.6 endorsed a Comprehensive implementation plan on maternal, infant and young child nutrition. This resolution has specified six global nutrition targets for 2025. This policy brief covers the first target: a 40% reduction in the number of children under-5 who are stunted. The purpose of this policy brief is to increase attention to, investment in, and action for a set of cost-effective interventions and policies that can help Member States and their partners in reducing stunting rates among children aged under 5 years.

Acceleration of progress in nutrition will require effective, large-scale nutrition-sensitive programmes that address key underlying determinants of nutrition and enhance the coverage and effectiveness of nutrition-specific interventions.  The need for investments to boost agricultural production, keep prices low, and increase incomes is undisputable; targeted agricultural programmes can complement these investments by supporting livelihoods, enhancing access to diverse diets in poor populations, and fostering women’s empowerment. However, evidence of the nutritional effect of agricultural programmes is inconclusive.  Ways to enhance programme nutrition-sensitivity include: improve targeting; use conditions to stimulate participation; strengthen nutrition goals and actions; and optimise women’s nutrition, time, physical and mental health, and empowerment. Nutrition-sensitive programmes can help scale up nutrition-specific interventions and create a stimulating environment in which young children can grow and develop to their full potential.

  • To showcase and inform with evidence that nutrition sensitive intervention should be done to complete the comprehensive action in stunting reduction
  • To encourage collaborative and multi-sectorial works in ensuring the efforts in maternal and child health improvement
  • To highlight the important of comprehensive approach in nutrition intervention

Expected Outcome:
  • Delegates encouraged to broaden their networks and engage more in supporting their government to focus on child and maternal health efforts
  • To provide strategic political agenda on encourage government to conduct comprehensive intervention in stunting reduction
