The Committee gave strategic directions on some of the activities and proffered solutions to some of the challenges affecting the implementation of the programme in Lao PDR. Members of the committee also provided insights to some of the nutrition policy relevant questions posed by stakeholders at both national and sub national levels during the dissemination of report on “Multiple and Overlapping Deprivation Analysis on Stunting among children under 5 years in Lao”. This enabled the Data and Policy Analysis Units to prioritize questions for analysis in 2020
