About the Conference

The Pakistan Nutrition & Dietetic Society (PNDS) in association with the Nutrition Society presents a conference aiming to break the silos between the scientists working in undernutrition and NCD prevention. To bring these two different areas together to address the triple burden of malnutrition.

Pakistan is facing a triple burden of malnutrition with unabated rates of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies and infections in younger population and rising burden of hypertension and diabetes in adult population. Scientific literature suggests that there is a link between undernutrition in earlier years of life and NCDs in later life. However, most of the scientists who work in undernutrition do not take into consideration the long terms adverse consequences on health that manifest in the form of NCDs. Similarly, researchers who work in the area of NCD prevention and control do not interact with researchers who work in the area of undernutrition in earlier years of life.

The 2nd PNDS International Conference will take place in Karachi, Pakistan from March 11th – 13th 2022. This 2.5 day conference, supported by IUNS and The Nutrition Society, aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the fields of early years undernutrition interventions and NCD’s to exchange knowledge and build connections.

Pakistan is facing a triple burden of malnutrition with unabated rates of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies and infections in younger population and rising burden of hypertension and diabetes in adult population. The scientific literature suggests that there is a link between undernutrition in early years and NCD’s in later life. However many working in practice are unaware of the synergy and interconnections between the two areas.
