We are pleased to announce the arrival of ten distinguished guests from five leading Tanzanian institutions for a 2-week symposium: Building Strong Nutrition Systems: Implementation Science for Scaling up Nutrition in Tanzania.
Participants come from The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology, Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre, Sokoine University of Agriculture, and Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College.
The goal of this collaborative workshop is to provide the opportunity for experts in nutrition to actively engage across individuals and organizations. Participants will identify gaps in the capacity to deliver effective life-saving interventions and jointly create a strategic plan which will strengthen the frontline workforce at the district and community level in Tanzania, utilizing a multi-sectoral approach to scale up nutrition. Participants will be visiting through the end of October 2015.
