From our colleagues at Family Care International:
Please join Family Care International and our partners at a side event to this week’s meetings of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. 1,000 Days: Improving the Nutrition of Rural Women will focus on the crucial time between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s 2nd birthday. These 1,000 days offer a unique window of opportunity to shape healthier and more prosperous futures. By investing in improving nutrition for mothers and children in this 1,000-day window, we can help ensure that a child can live a healthy and productive life, and we can also help families, communities and countries break out of the cycle of poverty.

Where: Salvation Army (Downstairs Conference Room), 221 E. 52nd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues), New York City
