IBFAN – International Baby Food Action Network

IN LONDON, IBFAN PARTICIPATES IN THE WORLD PUBLIC HEALTH NUTRITION CONGRESS 2024

๐Ÿ“ 10 June 2024 โ€“ 13 June 2024 | ๐Ÿ“University of Westminster, London, United Kingdom

The World Public Health Nutrition Congress 2024 is being held one year before the end of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition. The Congress will question the current global solutions to addressing malnutrition in all its forms. Ultimately, we will be aiming to ensure that nutrition targets truly become political priorities and that solutions include the voices of the marginalised more than those of the powerful. We will be challenging the increasing voice of corporate actors in planning and policy making in the face of the lack of voice and influence of the populations most effected by increasing food insecurity and related food system challenges such as threats to food sovereignty.
