This seminar is a follow-up to the government cluster policy workshop held in February 2014, which examined selected key elements of the SANHANES-1 findings with a view to devise a programme of priority actions for: 

  • Improvement of care and quality of life during the first 1000 days; 
  • Coordination of food security and dietary diversity;
  • Evaluation of the school health and the school nutrition programme;
  • Reappraisal of the Integrated Nutrition Programme (INP); and
  • Design and implementation programmes for the early prevention of NCDs. 

The current seminar similarly focused on food, nutrition, and care security in the first 1,000 days with the aim to assess the situation of South African women and children during that period, and to chart the way forward for new or improved interventions designed to address care and the nutritional status of women and their children. Presentations and selected workshop references can be downloaded above.
