Virtual World Public Health Nutrition Congress 2020

The World Public Health Nutrition (WPHN) Congress was due to take place in Brisbane Australia from 31 march to 2 April 2020, however due to the impact of COVID-19, the World Public Health Nutrition Association (WPHNA) and the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) made the difficult decision to not proceed with the WPHN Congress 2020 as a face to face event as originally planned. However to ensure that the global public health nutrition community still had the opportunity to share, engage and learn, the content was converted to a virtual event held from 1 May to 5 June 2020.

WORLD PUBLIC HEALTH NUTRITION CONGRESS 2020

Knowledge, Policy, Action in the Decade of Nutrition 2016-2025 

What is working or not? Where are the gaps? What needs more effort or change?

About the Congress

Held every 4 years, the World Public Health Nutrition Congress was established by the World Public Health Nutrition Association (WPHNA) to bring together the international public health nutrition sector for an international congress free from funding from conflicted sources. The Congress acts as a pathway to strengthen the knowledge base, partnerships and commitment for effective action to improve nutrition related health, particularly among vulnerable populations in the world.

What is working or not? Where are the gaps? What needs more effort or change?

 

Today, nearly one in three persons globally suffers from at least one form of malnutrition – under-nutrition, micronutrient deficiency, overweight or obesity – and a large part of the world’s population is affected by diet-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
