Interview with Peru’s VP Araoz on how to get nutrition higher on the development agenda

While in Iowa for the Borlaug Symposium I had the opportunity of chatting with Vice President Mercedes Araoz of Peru. The Vice President is an economist and also used to be the Minister of Finance.

Given Peru’s strong performance in reducing stunting over the past 10 years I was keen to ask her about what we in the nutrition community need to do to make Ministers of Finance pay attention to nutrition.
