UNSCN News is a periodic review of developments in international nutrition compiled by UNSCN from a variety of sources of information. UNSCN News aims to serve as a communication channel for the international nutrition community of practice, highlighting recent developments in policy and programme. The UNSCN News has published peer reviewed papers on relevant nutritional issues including updates on UNSCN members’ activities twice a year since 1988. Many developing country researchers and programme managers have found the UNSCN News very useful, as they often do not have easy access to other journals. The focus on policy and programme implications makes the UNSCN News unique compared to other research oriented nutrition publications.
