IFGH and Concern Worldwide Scaling Up Nutrition Seminar

December 17, 2012

This was the first in a series of seminars seeking to stimulate debate and critical thinking and to promote linkages among practitioners, researchers and policy makers in the development and humanitarian spheres around evidence-based programming and promising practice.   In this first seminar, Concern focused on approaches to strengthening health systems, specifically community health systems, in ‘fragile’ contexts where the burden of child and maternal mortality, morbidity and undernutrition are generally highest.
