Implications of COVID-19 on Nutrition: Lessons Learned and Practical & Innovative Approaches - Perspectives from Civil Society, Government, and Academia - Webinar Summary Notes

The novel coronavirus is imposing unprecedented health, nutrition, social, and economic risks to the global population. Ethiopia is also being affected, and the continued spread of the virus has the potential to reverse some of the nutritional gains that the country has achieved in the last few years.

In light of this, on September 30th, Tufts University, in collaboration with Save the Children, organized a webinar that brought together representatives from government, civil society, and academia to discuss lessons learned, practical and innovative approaches regarding COVID-19, different sectors’ adaptation and response plans, and recommendations to address the current and future epidemic and minimize its negative impact on nutrition.
