GAIN, together with the McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) and the Micronutrient Initiative (MI), is launching the 2016 Global Nutrition Report (GNR) on 1 November 2016 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the McGill SSMU Ballroom (3rd floor), 3480 McTavish Street, Montreal. Few challenges facing the global community today match the scale of malnutrition, a condition that directly affects one in three people. The Global Nutrition Report is an independent, multi-partner initiative that holds a mirror to our successes and failures at meeting intergovernmental nutrition targets. Building on previous editions, the 2016 Report offers an optimistic message that when we – from public agencies, businesses, civil society organizations, academia, and other stakeholder groups – work together, our collective impact can achieve the changes needed to sustainably transform lives, communities, and the future.
