    Nourish and Flourish: The Role of Nutrition in Improving Women’s Health Outcomes

    This virtual event, hosted by Devex in partnership with Nestlé, will bring together nutrition and women’s health experts to jointly explore what’s needed to support women’s health and well-being through good nutrition across all life stages. The discussion will also highlight the importance of considering gender-specific research and programs in order to advance women’s health outcomes and maximize the impact of nutrition interventions and policies.

    Millions of women and adolescent girls across the globe struggle to access nutritious diets and essential nutrition services, exacerbating gender inequalities. Good nutrition is vital for women’s health before and during pregnancy or breastfeeding, and to raise well-nourished children. Without proper nutrition, women and adolescent girls risk weakening their immunity to infections.

    Globally, more than 1 billion adolescent girls and women suffer from undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and anemia, endangering our communities. The gender gap in food insecurity more than doubled from 49 million in 2019 to 126 million in 2021, with COVID-19 exacerbating the situation. Progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals has been minimal and anemia and micronutrient deficiencies remain prevalent.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from leading experts on the role of nutrition in transforming women’s health. Register now to join us!

    Time: 1:30-2:30 p.m. CEST | 7:30-8:30 a.m. EST
