The African Nutrition Leadership Programme (ANLP) was held from October 31 to November 10, 2006 in Potchefstroom, South Africa, under the Directorship of Johann Jerling (North-West University, South Africa) and Kombi Mbhenyane (University of Venda, South Africa). The 30 participants at the program were selected from final year PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, the food industry, or government and are interested and active in food, nutrition and health at large. They are mainly from Africa (15 African countries: Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and one European country: Norway). The 10 day course is designed to assist participants in identifying and developing their own leadership skills and style by focusing on the core skills of leadership, team building, networking, communication, and the role of nutrition and science in society. This is achieved through a varied and highly interactive program,which includes role-playing, presentations, and discussion groups.
