Indicators for Child Growth and Development Presentation and Consultative Event
On October 6, 2015, at this in-person presentation held at FHI 360, Dr. Ed Frongillo shared his current research and findings exploring indicators beyond stunting to measure outcomes and impacts of integrated nutrition, health, and ECD interventions, building upon a symposium he presented last year in Washington DC and his recent publication in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. Dr. Maureen Black provided key information on the effort to holistically measure child well-being and guided, along with Dr. Frongillo, a discussion and possible paths for moving forward.
This was part of a larger two-day event, which included a consultative meeting of experts who discussed potential indicators for integrated programming.
