The International Union of Nutritional Sciences features contemporary global nutrition issues, such as:
- The Global Challenge of Obesity
- The nature and determinants of child development and their implications for programmatic interventions with young children
The IUNS also embraces global nutrition agenda to address:
- Food and nutrition problems in developing countries
- Food safety training for nutritionists
To live a life without malnutrition is a fundamental human right. The persistence of malnutrition, especially among children and mothers in a world of plenty is immoral. Nutrition improvement anywhere in the world is not a charity but a societal, household and individual right.
