Storyline

At the opening plenary session of the 126th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly in Kampala, Uganda, UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake appealed for the inclusion of nutrition security as an essential element of every national development plan.

SOUNDBITE (English) UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake:
“I am grateful for this opportunity to urge that when all of you return home to your constituents and your governments, you advocate for measures to combat the effects of under-nutrition. For you, collectively and individually, to make the great difference that you can.”

More than 600 parliamentarians from over 100 countries participated at the IPU Assembly.
The IPU forms a critical UNICEF partner in mobilizing decision makers on behalf of the world’s children.

On field trips, Parliamentarians were able to observe some of UNICEF’s nutrition programmes first hand.

SOUNDBITE (English) Paolo Grimoldi, Member of Parliament, Italy
“Coming here today is the way to understand better the situation without hearing statistics but looking for some solutions.”

The children admitted to Mulago nutrition centre are severely malnourished. Once stablilsed and treated for acute malnutrition and other medical complications as a result of this, mothers are educated on good nutrition practices.

SOUNBITE (Luganda) Sophia Nakkazzi, mother:

“I used to feed my baby late and wait for her to cry. But now I make sure to feed her in time.”
Across town, Parliamentarians also visited Kisenyi health centre where they interacted with children and caregivers affected by malnutrition treated on an outpatient basis.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jean Crowder, Member of Parliament,Canada :
“The youth of the country are the future so the nutrition programmes that make sure grow up healthy and capable are very important.”

The message is loud and clear. Ending child under-nutrition is critical to achieving virtually all Millenium Development Goals by 2015.
