ARISE kick-off meeting

The first in-face meeting of the ARISE-NUTRINT consortium was held in Tanzania last week. ARISE-NUTRINT project is supported through EU HORIZON program, with the consortium led by the researchers from the USA, and several European and African countries. This multi-year project aims to establish a global alliance to prevent and reduce nutrition-related noncommunicable diseases among adolescence and youth in Africa, by boosting adolescents’ health behaviors and outcomes through nutrition literacy and fluency and by providing critical policy information and tools to scale and sustain interventions and policies to support adolescents in healthy food consumption and lives. As partners in this project, we sincerely hope that our experiences in promoting healthy behaviors in Serbian youth would be expanded to international arena.
