24 May 2017. Brussels. Better Targeting Food Safety Investments in Low and Middle Income Countries.

Recent work by the WHO shows the health burden of foodborne disease is comparable to that of malaria, HIV/AIDS or tuberculosis. To further expose and explore the massively under-estimated burden of foodborne disease and its likely causes, the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) organised this workshop.
The event provided updates on recent evidence on the burden of foodborne disease in low and middle income countries (LMICs) as well as a review of food safety interventions and opportunities to discuss promising solutions. The event program focused first on the vastly underestimated burden of foodborne disease in LMICs and its likely causes. The program then took a closer look at successes in and unintended consequences of small-scale food safety interventions and explore options for developing widespread solutions for foodborne disease in LMICs.
