Webinar - Anaemia prevention programmes for women: an opportunity for double duty actions

3 May 2019 at 9:00 EDT

As the call for universal coverage of public health interventions gains momentum, we need to ask: are anaemia prevention programmes doing enough to improve women's health? Is there a space for double duty actions?
Double-duty actions are public health interventions, programmes and policies that have the potential to simultaneously reduce the risk or burden of both undernutrition and overweight, obesity or diet-related non-communicable diseases.

To date, in 54 countries anaemia and obesity in women are of public health concern. Please join us in the next webinar as we discuss how our community can consider shared drivers and solutions towards developing stronger integrated programmes in these countries.
