The Vice President of Malawi, The Right Honorable Joyce Banda, recently gave the keynote address at a roundtable meeting on ‘Hidden Hunger – the missing link between health and food’, jointly hosted by the Commonwealth Secretariat and SIGHT AND LIFE, ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Health Ministers’ Meeting in Geneva in May. Other speakers who made up the panel were Dr Klaus Kraemer of SIGHT AND LIFE, Dr Martin Bloem of the WFP, and Dr Werner Schultink of UNICEF. All expressed the urgent need for governments to incorporate policies that include nutrition and the provision of micronutrients, especially for the most vulnerable, in order to avoid a social and economic disaster and to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In her speech, which follows below, the Malawian Vice President shared how the Malawian government has made tackling nutrition security and hidden hunger a key economic and social priority and how this policy is making a tangible difference in Malawi. Vice President Banda started by stating how Malawi has earned recognition as a country that has a successful model for placing nutrition at the center of the development agenda. “As overseer of the Department of Nutrition, HIV and AIDS in the Office of the President and Cabinet, I am delighted to present Malawi’s model as an example of best practices that could be replicated in other countries and could accelerate the attainment of the nutrition-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).”
