Guinea Including Nutrition Component For First Time In Agricultural Plan

For the first time, Guinea is including a nutrition component in its agricultural investment strategy, a move that experts “say … stems from an increasing recognition that agriculture must be harnessed to improve nutrition and health,” IRIN reports.

“The new section of the investment plan covers nutrition education, improving access to nutrient-rich foods, treatment of malnutrition, and complementary feeding for children aged 6-24 months, according to Mamady Daffe, head of nutrition in the Health Ministry,” IRIN writes (7/7).
