Dr. Buddhima Lokuge of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) will speak about MSF's work in areas devastated by malnutrition. This ongoing crisis contributes to 3.5 to 5 million deaths in children under five each year, and leads to long term disability, and results in poor health and educational outcomes for many more. Dr. Lokuge will speak about malnutrition's impact on children, their families and communities; of the neglect of the problem at the national and international level; and of practical strategies to reverse the crisis in the worst affected areas. At a time of increasing food prices and food insecurity, Dr. Lokuge will speak of the urgent need for international action.

This event is free, wheelchair accessible, and open to the public.
