Location: McNally Main 227, Saint Mary's University
International Development Studies of Saint Mary's University presents a seminar by Carmen Jacqueline Ho, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science and Institute of Development Studies, University of Guelph.
Amongst the poor, maternal and child malnutrition is often a chronic and devastating issue. Indeed nutrition-related factors contribute to an estimated 45 percent of deaths in children under the age of five. Simple, low-cost nutrition interventions, which can treat and prevent malnutrition, are readily available – yet the World Health Organization has stated that national nutrition policies remain inadequate in many low and middle-income countries. What explains this? This presentation will offer an answer to this question and explain the persistence of inadequate nutrition policies.
