Capacity building is an integral part of the Growth through Nutrition learning agenda strategy. Learning events serve as an opportunity to disseminate research findings as well as build capacity around research and learning among the research and learning communities in Ethiopia. Tufts hosted a half-day learning event on Dec 14 at the Capital Hotel. During this event, two recent Ph.D. graduates sponsored by USAID ENGINE presented their dissertation topics:
Topic 1: Understanding Child Malnutrition in Ethiopia: Determinants of child caring practices, multiple anthropometric failures, and seasonality of growth
Topic 2: Childbearing and Undernutrition During Adolescence: Linkages with newborn birth outcomes and infant growth in a cohort of young pregnant women and their infants in Ethiopia.
