Speakers from Kachin Light (WPN), the Myanmar Health Assistant Association, Save the Children and Action contre la Faim shared how they adapted their nutrition programming in Myanmar in the COVID-19 and post-coup context, and made recommendations to put nutrition at the top of the humanitarian response. A Global Nutrition Cluster speaker called nutrition partners to act for better data, more external support, and increased emergency response preparedness.
