Public and private organisations gather for three-day symposium
UN representatives, policy makers and health and nutrition professionals will meet in Vienna later this month to focus on the latest developments in the prevention and treatment of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) in infants and children.
Recognising MAM as one of the world’s most serious health problems, the aims of the three-day event include defining needs for future research and recommending ways to improve the monitoring and evaluation of MAM management programmes.

A team of nutrition experts from Arla Foods Ingredients will be among the participants.
