NutritionIntervention

The hostilities in Marawi displaced thousands of residents and can result to increased malnutrition. Conflicts affect livelihoods, impair productive activities and limit access to safe foods and basic services. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) recommends that emergency nutrition interventions include food distribution, supplementary feeding and micronutrient supplementation as well as nutrition education. Relief efforts should include plans for protecting or re-establishing the sustainable food and livelihood security of the affected groups when the crisis subsides.

FNRI-NIEPS

This is about policy forum on health and nutrition, but, the event gave an affirmation that policy here can also mean Partnership of Lawmakers in Congress, Yes! (POLICY). The forum aimed to achieve;  to partner and link with the policymakers so that researches and projects’ results are translated to policy statements and recommendations may have wider use as references for crafting bills and laws.
