On October 24-25, 2013, Alive & Thrive and the Government of Ethiopia co-hosted a Forum on Stunting Reduction: Nutrition & Beyond for Solutions. The Forum brought together more than 100 technical experts, government representatives, program implementation organizations, research institutions, donors, and invited international guests. The purpose of the Forum was to explore approaches to stunting reduction with a focus on practical guidance for the design, implementation, and evaluation of stunting reduction programs. The Forum was structured around the following themes: 1) causes and consequences of stunting and implications for a multisectoral approach, 2) multisectoral linkages, 3) frontline workers, 4) advocacy, 5) the role of the private sector, and 6) behavior change. The program included presentations, six 3-minute videos relating the topic of the session to the Ethiopian context, A&T TV spots, Q&A, and a panel of donors discussing the way forward.
