Improving nutrition during middle childhood and adolescence by 2032: A research roadmap

Author: Stephanie V. Wrottesley and Natasha Leijveld
Year: 2023
Resource type: Report

Despite the importance of nutrition during middle childhood (5–9 years) and adolescence (10–19 years) for the health and well-being of current and future generations, the 5–19-year period remains relatively neglected in research, policy and programming agendas.

In 2021, Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) conducted a research prioritisation exercise using the Child Health and Nutrition Research Initiative (CHNRI) methodology. The results of the CHNRI research priority surveys are published in PHN journal.

This research roadmap provides a scoping review of available literature for the six priority research areas identified by the CHNRI exercise. It collates current knowledge, evidence gaps and lessons learnt from research conducted across health-related fields to set out a detailed, global research agenda to support nutrition for children and adolescents 5–19 years of age in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) over the next 10 years.

There is both a full report and a summary report available.
