How can implementation research help support the delivery of nutrition interventions at scale?

In 2 days, delegates will be coming together virtually for the first South Asia-focused implementation research conference “Delivering for Nutrition (D4N) in South Asia: Implementation Research in the Context of COVID-19” from December 1-2, 2021.

SISN is delighted to be one of 18 co-hosts for this event. In preparation for this conference we asked our Chief Information Officer, Dr Mduduzi Mbuya to reflect on the question “How can implementation research help support efforts to deliver nutrition interventions at scale in South Asia in the context of COVID19?” Watch to hear what he had to say.

We hope that you join us at 06:00 EST on December 1st for the opening plenary, where SISN President, Dr Peggy Bentley, will share some opening remarks on the implementation of maternal and child nutrition programs in the region.

This will be followed by 4 thematic sessions based on the abstracts received on research studies and implementation experiences, explicitly focused on COVID-19, and related to coverage and quality of maternal and child health and nutrition interventions/programs, social safety net programs, the impacts of the pandemic on infant and young child feeding practices, diet quality, food security, nutritional status and other outcomes.

The discussions and deliberations emerging from this conference are expected to convey research-based insights to nutrition stakeholders and policymakers to bolster actions for tackling undernutrition in South Asia.
