The Double Burden of Malnutrition Symposium Proceedings

Symposium proceedings from the recent IAEA-UNICEF-WHO Symposium on the Double Burden of Malnutrition (DBM) have now been published. The symposium took place in Vienna, Austria from December 10-13th and aimed to strengthen understanding of how to tackle the DBM by sharing recent research findings as well as experiences with the implementation of relevant interventions, programmes and policies.

Particular focus was given to the role of stable isotopes in addressing gaps both in the measurement of malnutrition and in assessing the impact of interventions. The symposium also promoted double-duty actions, new assessment tools, considerations for policies and action plans to support Member States in achieving their defined nutrition commitments within the Nutrition Decade.

You can access all conference materials – including pictures and presentations at the IAEA’s Human Health Campus. This includes poster presentations and media features.
