Field Exchange - Issue 57

This is a general issue that features, for the second year running, a special section that shares key outputs of Action Against Hunger’s Research for Nutrition Conference held in November 2017. This issue also shares a range of experiences across topics and contexts with several articles on nutrition-sensitive and multi-sector nutrition programming from Zimbabwe and Bangladesh and a synthesis of learning from three ENN case studies of multi-sector programming. Health system strengthening in fragile contexts is the focus of an article by World Vision in Somalia, while progress on scale up of the management of severe acute malnutrition management is described in an article from Afghanistan. A range of other field articles, research articles and news and views pieces are also included that together contribute to another rich and diverse issue.
