Goal action plan

The Food for Health workshop: Dialogue on Disease Related Malnutrition 'kicked-off' the commitment actions. During the workshop over 100 individuals were engaged and 100% of participants from diverse sectors responded affirmatively to confirming this commitment.

Going forward, relevant stakeholders will be engaged and identified in conjunction with'principles of engagement'. Ongoing feedback will continue to be sought from both national and international stakeholders.
