FT Health: Food for thought
The latest issue of the Financial Times’ weekly global health newsletter highlights recent reports marking World Food Day, including a Food and Agriculture Organization report on the challenges of migration, a World Food Programme (WFP) report documenting the “spiraling food prices in countries affected by conflict or instability,” and another WFP report on “how a lack of funding is holding back progress on the multinational nutrition for growth initiative.” The newsletter also features an interview with John Nkengasong, founding director of the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and provides a round-up of global health-related news stories (Dodd/Jack, 10/19).
