More than 85 people participated in Scaling Up Maternal, Infant, and Young Child Nutrition (MIYCN) Programming, a satellite session at the Micronutrient Forum in Beijing, China, on May 11, 2009. The meeting, sponsored by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN); the University of California, Davis; the United States Agency for International Development (USAID); and USAID’s Infant & Young Child Nutrition (IYCN) Project, led by the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), brought together a wide range of conference participants and members of the MIYCN Network, a group of individuals working toward integrated programming for MIYCN. The session emphasized the importance of an integrated approach for addressing nutritional needs during the important life cycle window from preconception through two years of age. Speakers representing government, nongovernmental organizations, universities, and the private sector presented successful approaches to identify and address the problem of malnutrition through the life cycle. Presenters discussed a wide variety of integrated solutions that have achieved results in Thailand, Bangladesh, Honduras, Malawi, and other countries.
