Prof Akosa made the above comment at a roundtable dialogue organized by the Ghana Coalition of Civil Society for Scaling Up Nutrition (GHACSSUN) to discuss the 2015 budget and look at strategies to increase budget for nutrition.

He explained that nutrition was a multi-sectorial issue and emphasized how pressing nutrition issues were to the overall development of the country.

Mr Kwabena Appiah Pinkrah, Member of Parliament for Akrofoum, shared Prof Akosa’s sentiments that nutrition was a very sensitive area that needed great attention.
