In September 2008, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières and Columbia University's Institute of Human Nutrition will convene a meeting of lead national and international organizations and experts to review recent successes and examine how international nutrition and food aid programming can more effectively address the crisis of malnutrition in high burden regions. At a time of rising food prices and food insecurity, the need to scale up efforts to prevent the deaths, illness and disability caused by malnutrition every year is even more urgent.

The program was moderated by Dr. Ron Waldman, Professor of Public Health at Columbia Universitys Mailman School of Public Health and Team Leader for Pandemic Preparedness and Response at the United States Agency for International Development.
