Event description
Understand why closing the gap in maternal nutrition is paramount, and how we can ensure all mothers get critical vitamins and minerals.

About this Event

Compelling evidence shows that taking multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) during pregnancy reduces the risk of anemia in mothers and helps ensure babies are born healthy. But global recommendations lag behind the science, and many pregnant women cannot access MMS. The event will address why closing this gap in maternal nutrition is paramount, and how we can ensure all mothers get the vitamins and minerals they need.

Kristen Hurley, Program Director at Vitamin Angels and Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will moderate an enlightening discussion on MMS with Robert Black of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Spencer Kirk of Kirk Humanitarian, Lenore Spies from the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health, Klaus Kraemer of Sight and Life, as well as representatives from 1,000 Days, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Children's Investment Fund Foundation.

Cocktails and light fare will be served following the event for an opportunity to meet the panelist and network.
