EMD FRANK BLACK SEMINAR: Wafaie Fawzi, "Nutrition and Global Health Systems: Integrated Solutions to Advance Maternal-Child Health and Infectious Disease Control"

Despite public health advances, infectious diseases remain major causes of disease burden globally, especially among vulnerable populations. Nutrition plays a key role in the susceptibility to and severity of infection. This talk will highlight notable research demonstrating the impact of nutritional interventions on common childhood infections, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. However, siloed programs have limited the scale and sustainability of approaches to address these challenges. Multidisciplinary and cross-sector research, implementation, and education are necessary to advance integrated solutions for improved maternal-child health and the control of infectious diseases.

YSPH values inclusion and access for all participants.
