Revival of ‘New & Noteworthy in Nutrition’

The new publication New & Noteworthy in Nutrition (as a reincarnation of the earlier World Bank publication) is now available (Issue 1, December 2007). Originally a World Bank Publication, it was taken over by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in 2000 where it continued until 2003. The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) has now relaunched it.

The aim of reviving the publication is to enhance learning opportunities in nutrition and to complement the SCN News1 and other relevant materials. For the moment it will be published every four months. Content will be based on a review of recent literature, news articles, and outcomes of important events and conferences related to nutrition. Each issue will close with a section entitled 'Whatever Happened to . . .?' that takes a look back at the ideas that were supposed to help save the world nutritionally but didn't, based on readers suggestions. The publication is available at: http://www.prb.org/NewandNoteworthy.aspx
