Join us for an informational webinar “Improving prenatal nutrition: Making the case for multiple micronutrient supplements” on Tuesday, April 28, from 10-11:10 a.m. ET.
The event aims to highlight the importance of multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) as a driver to improve maternal nutrition and share insights on existing and future interventions to ensure that all women have access to MMS during pregnancy and understand their benefits. The expert panelists will emphasize that greater importance should be placed on cross sector collaborations to overcome current challenges and increase demand, supply and delivery of high coverage MMS.
