Join IYCN on July 19: What works for community-based nutrition programming?

The Infant & Young Child Nutrition (IYCN) Project presents 

What works for community-based nutrition programming?

Applying tools and strategies for changing behaviors and preventing malnutrition

July 19, 2011

9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

I am pleased to invite you to join the IYCN team and our partners for a half-day meeting on strengthening community-based programs to prevent malnutrition during the first 1,000 days. As IYCN completes five years of project implementation, our team members from five countries will share challenges, experiences, and future directions for reaching caregivers and communities to change behaviors and improve maternal and child nutrition.

Speakers will share methods for program implementation, explore the role of community programming in strengthening health systems, and discuss integration of nutrition into other community-based health and other sector programs. We will also launch our new collection of resources designed to engage community members such as grandmothers, fathers, and community leaders in preventing malnutrition. Participants will have the opportunity to preview the tools and receive a complete set on CD.

I hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity to meet IYCN’s country program staff and participate in the discussion.
