Mozambique Aflatoxin Research Dissemination
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition hosted a national and provincial dissemination of study results in Mozambique on February 27th and March 3rd, respectively.
These events presented study results, which showed a significant and negative association between aflatoxin exposure in children 6-59 months of age and linear growth. The dissemination proceedings focused on multi-sectoral recommendations for aflatoxin mitigation strategies.
Invitees included national and provincial representatives from the Government of Mozambique, researchers, academics, private sector and development partners. These events provided an opportunity to engage with Mozambique stakeholders to inform policy and program design around aflatoxin mitigation as a critical element of public health, agriculture, food safety, economy, and development.
