COVID-19 is impacting nutrition progress in developing countries and damaging fragile systems. A relatively low number of cases have been reported in the Global South, yet underlying issues in health and social security systems are still not being addressed – and COVID-19 is causing development funds to be diverted.
The Power of Nutrition hosted an interactive webinar with Dr. David Nabarro, Special Envoy of the WHO Director General on COVID-19 to understand the true impact of the pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa and India, and what the global community needs to do. An expert on nutrition, healthcare and development, David is one of the six Special Envoys to the WHO Director-General on COVID-19 providing high-level political advocacy and engagement to help WHO coordinate the global response to the pandemic.
Over 200 leaders in the nutrition space dialled in. You can view a recording below.
