Improving Maternal & Child Nutrition: Partnering to Accelerate Delivery of MMS

Join us for a Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Side-event focusing on increasing the priority and accessibility of MMS by strengthening health systems in low-and-middle-income countries, raising awareness for MMS, and enhancing collaboration between public and private partners.

• Highlight evidence on the benefits of and need for MMS globally as a foundation for nutrition for health
• Share examples of repeatable and scalable interventions in the MMS landscape
• Demonstrate the importance of multi-sectoral partnerships in health care interventions for nutrition, sharing lessons learned from the JF4LMN Partnership
