UBS Optimus Foundation with Action Against Hunger and VillageReach
Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are from causes related to undernutrition1; the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated this reality. Compounding a growing hunger crisis, the global shortage of personal protective equipment threatens to disrupt the essential care provided by community health workers on the frontlines and erode decades of progress in improving child survival.
Join Marissa Leffler, Health Program Director, UBS Optimus Foundation, for this webinar discussion with Emily Bancroft, President of VillageReach and Dr. Charles Owubah, CEO of Action Against Hunger on the impacts of COVID-19 on food security, malnutrition, and routine healthcare delivery in Africa.
