Adolescence is a critical time in the life cycle, presenting what is sometimes called a "second window of opportunity" in an individual’s growth and development. USAID Advancing Nutrition believes that the international development community must give greater attention to the nutritional status and practices of this age group.
Addressing the nutritional needs of adolescents presents unique challenges, given their varied household, school, work, marital, and parental circumstances. USAID Advancing Nutrition launched an online Adolescent Nutrition Resource Bank, with over 150 resources, to help governments, donors, non-governmental organizations, and other adolescent nutrition stakeholders advocate for, design, implement, deliver, monitor, and evaluate effective adolescent nutrition programs and services.
Join USAID Advancing Nutrition for this webinar to learn more about why it’s important to prioritize adolescent nutrition, what is included in the USAID Advancing Nutrition Adolescent Nutrition Resource Bank, and how selected resources might be useful for you.
