New Strategy Needed

A course-change is needed to tackle persistent nutrition challenges slowing progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals, according to the Global Nutrition Report 2017. The annual round-up says fixing world nutrition is central to reaching development goals, from fighting disease to climate change.
Co-chaired by Jessica Fanzo, Distinguished Professor at the Berman Institute of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins, the report predicts a mere 1% chance of achieving a freeze on obesity and diabetes by 2025. While obesity continues to rise, anemia affects 1 in 3 women of reproductive age.
Reaching nutrition targets will take an estimated $70 billion over the next 10 years, and a more integrated approach to spending.
