Goal action plan

We will meet with federal and provincial governments to advocate for policy changes that can be articulated via the Policy Brief and supporting documents.

We will demonstrate interest and action taking place globally and highlight the opportunity to demonstrate leadership by formalizing policy that will address Disease Related Malnutrition.

We will solicit support and engagement from relevant stakeholders and collaborators to offer evidence in support of much needed policy to reduce incidences of DRM.
