About this Health talk
The pandemic’s effects have reverberated through the entire global community causing devasting impacts on the economy, food systems, and health systems - all exacerbated by the underlying structural inequity, including gender, and has created further nutrition insecurity. The potential repercussions on human life and well-being, alongside the long-term negative consequences on human capital development and economic growth, makes investments in effective nutrition interventions imperative and a vital contribution to resilience building. This webinar focuses on the role of essential nutrition actions and discusses how COVID-recovery can prioritize nutrition policy, financial investment in nutrition, and strengthened nutrition services to shape healthy, resilient populations.
