byRasmi Avula
Open Full Event Delivering for nutrition South Asia 2021

COVID-19 has disrupted health systems, nutrition services, and food systems around the world, including South Asia.  Research-based evidence and programmatic experiences are essential to support stakeholders to restore services and re-orient programs and policies to support better nutrition outcomes.

We, a consortium of co-hosts from around South Asia, are pleased to announce a virtual conference on ‘Delivering for Nutrition (D4N) in South Asia: Implementation Research in the Context of COVID-19’ on December 1-2, 2021. D4N 2021 aims to bring together evidence that can inform and support policy and program initiatives in South Asia to prioritize and improve maternal and child nutrition during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

With this overarching purpose, the key objectives are to:

  • Share evidence of the impact of COVID-19 on maternal and child nutrition
  • Highlight adaptations to support implementation of health and nutrition interventions and social safety net programs
  • Identify lessons learned from implementing programs to support maternal and child nutrition during the pandemic

We are inviting abstracts on research studies and implementation experiences, explicitly focused on COVID-19, and related to:

  • Implementation, coverage, and quality of maternal and child health and nutrition interventions/programs
  • Implementation, coverage and quality of social safety net programs
  • Impacts on infant and young child feeding practices, diet quality, food security, nutritional status or other outcomes
  • Other relevant implementation or research on nutrition and COVID-19

Thematic sessions will be based on selected oral and poster presentations. The Call for Abstracts is now closed. For any questions, please contact [email protected].
