Over the past 6 years, the `Transform Nutrition: Ideas, Policies and Outcomes’ short course has welcomed over 123 global leaders in its UK summer school and another 50 through the same course being run in India. Tailored versions of the course have also been held in India for District Nutrition Officers (Bihar) and practitioners (Karnataka). The five-day course has been designed for both policy makers and practitioners and aims to provide a base from which participants can develop their own future leadership for transformational change in nutrition.
One of the purposes of the network is to highlight practical examples of influence on practice and policy and share it with others. While the network is still in its infancy, alumni continue to express their demand for the network and recognise the importance of a supportive peer network for the sharing of knowledge fosters mutual learnings amongst members along with an appreciation of the tools that bring about change in nutrition policies and programmes.
