As interest in leveraging agriculture and food systems to optimise nutrition outcomes grows, there is an increasing demand for high quality metrics and methods to assess these causal mechanisms and evaluate policy and programme impacts.
The Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy invites the global community of ANH researchers and users of this research to the first ANH Academy Week to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 20-24 June 2016
This webinar explored women's health and empowerment; critical factors that are frequently overlooked in agriculture and nutrition research. With the focus of interventions and studies so often centered on child and household indicators, IMMANA Grantees Amy Webb and Erin Lentz examined why women's empowerment matters; and reflect on the implications of its omission for women's health outcomes.
Animal-source foods (ASF) are some of the best sources of high-quality protein and micronutrients needed for healthy physical and cognitive development, especially among children. Livestock contributions to health and nutrition are complex, and are mediated through multiple pathways.
In this IMMANA webinar, Dr. Sara Stevano, Postdoctoral Fellow at SOAS, University of London, talks about women's time use in agriculture and nutrition research.
The Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy Working Group on Sustainable Diets held a two-day workshop and consultation on 11-12 February 2016. Consultation materials are now available and we welcome further feedback.

This session brings together a panel of six speakers followed by a facilitated discussion to highlight some of the key advances made by the LSHTM/ LCIRAH team in integrating agriculture, health and nutrition research. The panel will include researchers across the three LSHTM Faculties and LSHTM collaborators from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and SOAS, University of London.
The Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy was launched on 3 June 2015 at the 5th LCIRAH Research Conference.
