Back to Overview

With 58 million stunted children on the continent and stunting rates as high as 40% in some African countries, malnutrition remains a public health emergency in Africa and hinders optimal child development. School feeding has been recognized by the international community as an opportunity to fill a child’s nutrient intake gap. The objectives of this side-event are to discuss and inspire the attendants of 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) on how child nutrition can be improved to unlock Africa’s full potential by focusing in particular on the nutrition value of school meals.

Sight and Life‘s Srujith Lingala will be presenting on innovative sustainable business models to increase access to eggs. Find out more about this side-event and register here
