According to Kwadwo Asenso-Okyere (IFPRI), speaking yesterday, “we have forgotten the importance of agriculture, health and nutrition linkages.”
“We need to make sure that when policy makers devise agricultural programs they bring on board health personnel. Similarly, when health sectors devise health programs, they have to involve agriculture people. There should be a way to talk to each other to make sure that the problems are internalized and solutions are found.”
“We need to bring everyone together at one table so that we all know that agriculture will produce the good food, health will protect the wellbeing of the people, and nutrition will make sure we have balanced and healthy diets.
