Double Burden of Malnutrition

Thursday, February 2, 2017
Hosted by CORE Group’s Nutrition Working Group.

This webinar facilitated a discussion on intersectoral nutrition sensitive strategies to address the double burden, introduced the concept, raised awareness of why this is a looming crisis, and gave an overview of what the global community of practice in food and nutrition security may be able to do to address it.

The audience learned about this looming global crisis: the impact the double burden has on people’s health and the strain this public health burden will put on fragile health systems. The audience also learned about the risks the double burden poses for emerging economies and what can be done to address it.
