USAID Advancing Nutrition Shares Learning and Innovative Tools to Reduce Malnutrition at Two International Conferences

December 7th, 2022 | News


USAID Advancing Nutrition, the Agency’s flagship multi-sectoral nutrition project led by JSI, is delighted to share learning and tools to help reduce malnutrition in all its forms at two global conferences from December 5–11, 2022. JSI staff are delivering presentations, leading discussions, and connecting with nutrition practitioners all over the world at the 2022 International Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) Summit⁣⁣ and the 22nd International Congress of Nutrition (ICN).

JSI is a sponsor of this year’s SBCC Summit, in Marrakech, Morocco. As part of USAID’s global commitment to reducing malnutrition and safeguarding the lives of women and children, USAID Advancing Nutrition is also a sponsor of this seminal event that convenes behavior change professionals from across disciplines and geographies to learn and share innovations. Summit sessions led by project staff encourage attendees to discuss what works in nutrition social and behavior change, what high-quality programming looks like, and how to strengthen local capacity. Throughout the week, USAID Advancing Nutrition is exhibiting at the Summit alongside JSI’s Behavior Initiative, making connections to advance people-centered change for development across key topics, including nutrition.

Half a world away, 14 additional staff from USAID Advancing Nutrition are leading a number of sessions at the ICN in Tokyo—the largest representation by USAID Advancing Nutrition at a conference since the project launched. Staff from around the world will lead two symposiums and deliver a series of oral presentations to disseminate findings from the last five years of research and implementation.
