NIPN Advisory board Meeting for 2020
A NIPN Advisory advisory board meeting was held on the 1st of December 2020 as a prelude to the national nutrition forum. The meeting was chaired by H.E. Dr. Kikeo Chantaboury, Vice Minister of MPI and Chair of NIPN Advisory Committee. It provided the opportunity for both the Data and Policy Analysis Units to give progress reports of their activities since the inception of NIPN in the country. The Committee gave strategic directions on some of the activities and proffered solutions to some of the challenges affecting the implementation of the program 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 the report on “Household survey”. This enabled the Data and Policy Analysis Units to prioritize questions for analysis in 2021.
