Nepal Nutrition Foundation Meeting: “SUN Movement with Food for Everyone”
The theme of the interaction program was “SUN Movement with Food for Everyone.” The Chairperson of NNF, Dr. Uma Koirala, expressed the relevancy of SUN in Nepal, and then Member Secretary of the National Planning Commission Dr. Yubaraj Bhusal highlighted the efforts done by the government of Nepal in the nutrition sector with changing the behaviour of the Nepalese people in food intake, and its accessibility and affordability.
The meeting successfully gave the message of nutrition interventions that were introduced from different government and non-government agencies. Further, it could create awareness of the civil society in respect to the concepts of SUN. The interaction was fruitful, raising interest and commitment from all participants to further contributions related to nutrition in Nepal. Highly recommended was to continue the establishment of such gatherings/interactions in the future, to strengthen the SUN movement’s objectives.
