Suzanne Marie Filteau Explains the Need for Body Composition Assessments

Producer: IAEA Department of Technical Cooperation

In light of the growing dimensions of the global malnutrition challenge, the IAEA recently organized a coordination meeting, held from 11 to 15 April at the IAEA's Vienna headquarters and attended by three international nutrition experts and 14 African Member State representatives. 

The attendees gathered to develop a roadmap toward a comprehensive evaluation of the impact of programmes aimed at addressing both MAM and SAM, in order to improve our collective understanding of the relative success or weaknesses of current approaches. 

Ms Suzanne Filteau, one of the three attending experts, took time away from the meeting to describe the utility of body composition assessments conducted using isotopic techniques.
