Kenya’s First Lady Launches Global Nutrition Report 2016
First Lady Margaret Kenyatta launched the East African version of the Global Nutrition Report in June, with an announcement on the commitment to doing more-and doing better-to ensure that all children get the healthiest possible start to life.

APHRC’s Health Challenges and Systems Research Program was deeply involved in the development and analysis of the Kenyan component of the annual independent review of the state of the world’s nutrition, which lays out progress toward global targets that include optimizing breastfeeding, reducing stunting and malnutrition rates and preventing the spread of food-related non-communicable diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
