Description

Up to 40% of children in Cambodia are malnourished, which not only impacts individual children but also has significant economic consequences for Cambodia's development. Health costs, undercapitalised work force due to child mortality, and reduced productivity all have an impact on economic growth. In order to equip university students and youth with a better understanding about the relationship between nutrition and income, as well as its impacts on a country's productivity and economic growth, World Vision's Child Health Now campaign will run an interactive University Forum. The topic of this forum is "Nutrition and Income", and will feature panellist H.E. Rath Vireak -- Member of the Council for Agricultural and Rural Development (RGC); and key food security, economic, nutrition, and maternal and child health experts from World Vision and Vision Fund. The University Forum aims to engage youth and university students in this interesting topic, and challenge them to explore how they can help address malnutrition using their own skills and interests.
