Day 1 - London Development Symposium:  The importance of health and nutrition

The importance of health and nutrition is often forgotten in the international development sphere. Hyper-focus on GDP, political stability, industrialisation and productive capacity has side-lined critical issues such as infectious diseases and vaccinal development, diabetes, AIDS and mental health in conflict zones. The London Development Symposium will aim to overcome this by critically addressing the importance of aspects such as R&D in medicine, as well as food sovereignty in the developing world, to highlight the importance of health and nutrition as basic human rights across the spectrum. 

 

Representatives include the likes of Action Against Hunger, War on Want and KCL’s Global Health Institute.
