ASEAN: insights and considerations toward nutrition programs

In July 2011, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) held a presymposium to the Asian Congress of Nutrition in Singapore. The objective of this symposium, cochaired by the World Food Programme (WFP), was to discuss important nutrition issues in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, to elaborate on pressing nutrition issues in the region, and to debate strategies, in particular to tackle the prevalence of malnutrition, with a focus on micronutrient deficiencies and stunting. 

The participants included stakeholders influencing the nutrition agenda in their respective countries and ranged from Ministry of Health participants to leaders of local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The articles in this Supplement were generated following the discussion and nutrition topics debated during the symposium.
