The theme of the 5th FANUS conference is “Multisectoral approach to strengthening food systems and achieving sustainable nutrition targets in Africa”. The conference will comprise a series of events including the opening ceremony, plenary sessions, scientific/technical sessions, workshops, a symposium, special presentations, exhibitions, networking, social and sightseeing tours among others. These activities will make the programme a unique and valuable experience that will consolidate efforts towards addressing malnutrition challenges in Africa.
