Exciting lessons about improved nutrition in Northern Laos! Almost 30 people joined the Provincial Nutrition Stakeholders’ Learning Workshop, which was held from 30-31 May 2022, co-hosted by CARE and the Department of Public Health in Oudomxai. Participants included Provincial Nutrition Committee representatives from five sectors (health, agriculture, education, women union, and planning and investment) from Luangnamtha and Oudomxai provinces and staff from INGO and Lao CSOs in Luangnamtha, Oudomxai, and Bokeo provinces.
The workshop brought together government and civil society organizations to share lessons learned from the implementation of nutrition projects, in support of the 22 government nutrition priorities in NPAN 2021-2015. It is also an exchange of lessons, experiences, and tools used in the implementation of the actual nutrition work, reflecting the good results and the gaps that need to be improved to make the program achieve improved nutrition in communities.
Congratulations on hosting this Nutrition Learning Workshop. This was conducted as part of their SCALING project, with generous funding from European Union in Laos . Together as the SUN network, we are all working to improve nutrition in Laos!
