Workshop for WHO Headquarters Interns

Nutrition continues to be a central health, economic and sustainable development challenge for every region on the planet. If executed thoughtfully, catalysing the efforts, resources and voice of the vast nutrition community, the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025) has the potential to propagate a society-wide movement, leading to national policy change and ultimately to the end of all forms of malnutrition. The Need for Nutrition Education/Innovation Programme (NNEdPro) Global Centre for Nutrition and Health, in collaboration with the WHO Department of Nutrition and Development, is hosting the workshop Bringing Nutrition into Health Systems: From Global Training Architecture to Local Implementation Models.

We face a complex healthcare challenge from under-nutrition, over-nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies alongside inadequate hydration. Individuals experience one or more of these problems during their life course and these can complicate illnesses, lengthen hospital stay and worsen clinical outcomes. We seek to create awareness around nutrition screening and assessment for rapid management of malnutrition in healthcare.
