Participants reviewed and examined the extent, possible causes, and cumulative impact of the continued failure to effectively address the high prevalence of malnutrition throughout Southern Sudan. The convention served as a launchpad for the development of a Southern Sudan nutrition health policy and the integration of direct nutrition interventions into the basic package of primary health care services.
