Breda Gavin-Smith

Global Public Health Nutrition Manager, Leadership Team

“Poor nutrition has devastating impacts on a child’s ability to grow, learn, and thrive.”

Breda_web

As a child growing up in rural Ireland, you are continually reminded of the impacts of the great famine. This instilled the importance of food availability, diversity, and politics in determining food security and in turn a country’s ability to prosper economically. These factors certainly influenced my decision to study public health nutrition.

My chosen career path allows me to utilize my knowledge in nutrition to support and implement programs that have a real impact in the lives of millions of malnourished children.

Having access to a diverse, safe, secure, and healthy food supply is a basic human right. We need to put politics aside and work together to end malnutrition in all its forms. It is one of the greatest challenges of our generation. 

Throughout my career, I have worked within both the public and private sectors, a non-governmental organization (NGO), and multi-stakeholder platform; providing me with a diverse foundation of experiences in the nutrition field. 

Now at Sight and Life, I am able to bring my nutritional science background together with my expertise in engaging partners across sectors to improve nutritional outcomes. Sight and Life is unique in the nutrition sphere in its ambition to link science with implementation know how to support a broader understanding of the dynamics of successful nutrition interventions. This truly lies at the heart of achieving a real impact in nutrition. 

For all devoted to nutrition.
