Welcome | June 2021

The GNC Annual Meeting 2021 has now happened! A huge thank you to all those (200+ people) who actively participated in this important two-part event.

We’ve now been given a clear direction from GNC active stakeholders for both the Nutrition in Emergencies Road Map AND the GNC Strategy (2022-2025) so we are aiming to share both of these key documents with you in the coming months.
