Anne Philpott, Nutrition and Health Advisor

I spent 5 years working on DFID India’s response to under nutrition in India – home to 40% of the world’s underweight children. Last year, I returned to London to work in the ‘Nutrition for Growth’ summit team - an event which ended with 94 governments and organisations making commitments to tackle nutrition. It’s exciting to see this often overlooked but easily prevented issue receiving the attention it needs, as under nutrition is the cause of 45% of child deaths worldwide.
