Goal action plan

This includes conducting a scoping review. An environmental scan of existing Disease Related Malnutrition (DRM) policies will be undertaken with the intention to build upon existing efforts as identified in the literature and through global contacts. This will inform a policy brief that will allow us to prioritize policy actions needed to advance universal healthcare related to DRM.
