Overview

Globally, adolescents―particularly girls―are greatly affected by malnutrition, partly due to their specific biological needs. However, they are often missed by health and nutrition interventions, as until recently they have not been viewed as a priority for health and nutrition. With technical expertise and deep understanding of the subject, Nutrition International has developed a free, online Adolescent Nutrition and Anaemia course. This course offers a high-level overview of adolescent anaemia around the world today and provides practical information to apply to regional, national and global programs geared toward helping adolescents thrive and achieve their dreams.
