The persistent problem of global acute malnutrition: Why does it persist despite humanitarian and development gains?

Despite global improvements in malnutrition and under-five mortality child Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) continues to be an ongoing and alarming problem in post-emergency and protracted crises. The Feinstein International Center recently released a discussion and related briefing paper on the scope of the problem, its drivers, and strategies for moving forward.

Join researchers and humanitarian practitioners for a discussion about:
· Potential drivers of persistently high GAM rates
· Challenges in understanding the actual drivers of persistent GAM
· Actions practitioners and policy makers must take to improve how emergency programs target the underlying drivers of persistent GAM

Panelists
· Josephine Ippe, Global Nutrition Cluster Coordinator, Office of Emergency Programme, UNICEF
· Gwenaëlle Luc, Link NCA Technical Advisor, Action contre la Faim
· Grainne Moloney, Chief Nutrition Section, UNICEF Kenya
· Abigail Perry, Senior Nutrition Adviser, UK Department for International Development

Helen Young, research director for nutrition, livelihoods, and conflict at the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University will chair this webinar. She will discuss findings from Feinstein’s recent investigation into this issue.
