Webinar Recording: Research Priorities for Nutrition in Adolescence and Middle Childhood

By ENN on 26 January 2023

In January 2023, we held a webinar on ‘Research Priorities for Nutrition in Adolescence and Middle Childhood’. We presented the findings from a recent research prioritisation survey (using the ‘CHNRI’ method) and discussed a Research Roadmap on how to tackle the most pressing evidence gaps for this vulnerable age group (5-19 years). ENN's Natasha Lelijveld and Stephanie Wrottesley were joined by experts in this field including David Ross (Stellenbosch University, ex-WHO), Deepika Sharma (UNICEF) and Caroline Kabiru (APHRC).

Presentation slides from the webinar can be downloaded below;
