In collaboration with the Moroccan Ministry of Health and the British Council, NNEdPro received funding to build collaborations between early career nutrition researchers from both Morocco and the UK.  

 

NNEdPro conducted a workshop in Rabat, Morocco to examine local nutrition research gaps and research capacity needs. The event brought together numerous researchers, government representatives and policy makers who worked to form a Nutrition Task Force with the ultimate goal to raise awareness of the nutrition research needs in Morocco and understand the central role of healthcare professionals in empowering and supporting local nutrition researchers.

 

The workshop has subsequently resulted in further funding from UNESCO that is currently being used to develop a digital nutrition education platform targeted at healthcare professionals.
