Roundtable on “Multi-Sectoral Approaches to Nutrition”

Professor Dr. Md. Asirul Hoque, Dean, Faculty of Public Health and Head, Department of Community Nutrition of the Bangladesh University of Health Sciences (BUHS) attended a Roundtable discussion on “Multi-sectoral Approaches to Nutrition” held at Azimur Rahman Conference Hall (Level-3) of The Daily Star Office 64-65, Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue on September, 07, 2013.

The Daily Star, MRDI, SUN, and Alive and Thrive, fhi360, organized the roundtable while resource persons from numerous governments, non-government, academic and civil society organizations shared their significant views on nutrition.

Professor Hoque said, we have failed to solve moderate and severe malnutrition problems, as we do not have any appropriate mainstreaming program. If a mother knows about the nutritional status of her baby by using color zones of the Growth Monitoring and Promotion (GMP) charts then she can opt for the solution.
