In this talk, Shawn K. Baker, Director of Nutrition in the Global Development Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will examine the evidence of malnutrition’s contribution to poor physical and cognitive development and mortality rates seen in children, and discuss the key solutions to solving this global problem. He will explore some of the key drivers of the neglect of this critical development priority and will then examine some of the intervention areas, such as promoting optimal breastfeeding and fortifying foods with essential vitamins and minerals. After presenting the evidence of success in supporting these areas, he will explore examples of how audience members can learn more about, and contribute to, scaling up nutrition interventions that can save lives and futures of children and mothers.
