Webinar: Food-based approaches to reduce anaemia

Food-based strategies have the goal of improving nutrition through increasing the availability and consumption of a nutritionally adequate micronutrient rich diet made up of a variety of safe, affordable nutritious foods.

Fortification, biofortification and improved dietary practices are considered important food-based strategies to reduce anaemia due to iron and other nutritional deficiencies.

Please join us in this webinar where we will discuss the status of these interventions globally and how they can be combined by countries to achieve the global target of halving anaemia in women by 2030.

Webinar panel:
Dr Nancy Aburto, Food and Nutrition Division, FAO
Ms Kristina Michaux, Harvest Plus
Dr Anjali Bhardwaj, Nutrition International
