27 September 2017InfoPoint Lunchtime conference: Food Systems for Improved Nutrition

Presentation: Lawrence Haddad, Executive Director, GAIN

But the crisis in poor diet quality—driving both undernutrition and conditions such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension–means that diets must improve and food systems become a bigger part of the solution. This talk explores how governments and businesses can begin to shape food systems to deliver healthier diets.
