Using evidence to inspire action
Undernutrition is the underlying cause of death for 2.6 million children a year; a third of all child deaths. Transform Nutrition is a consortium of international research partners. Using research-based evidence we aim to inspire effective action to address undernutrition. Find out what we do.
Sunny Kim, Research Fellow at IFPRI writes from the Third Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Cape Town (September 29-October 3, 2014), and asks 'How do the proposed actions from this conference bear on food and nutrition interventions, which are often delivered through health systems?'
Transform Nutrition are inviting outline proposals for studies of up to 24 months duration which will add to the evidence base on nutrition-relevant policy and action in Eastern Africa. Deadline is 21 November for short concept notes. See here for further information
