Nourishing Lives & Building the Future: History of Nutrition at USAID
In the late 1960's, when the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) began to invest in nutrition, work on nutrition in an international context was just beginning, with little known about the causes, consequences, and solutions for undernutrition. Since then, there has been much improvement in nutrition globally. Through close collaboration with partners, host-country governments, and the nutrition community as a whole, USAID has been a key contributor to this progress.
Join USAID and partners for the launch of a new resource showcasing the Agency's support for various nutrition focus areas, related research, vulnerable populations, and programming approaches over the past 50 years. This resource offers insights and lessons learned that can help inform ongoing and future efforts to improve nutrition. This event will feature both current and former USAID and partner staff who will share stories and discuss lessons learned for the future.
