We are combining the June and July editions of NNA to report on two recent meetings in the West Africa sub-region. The first was a workshop convened in Dakar, Senegal during March, 2009 to explore sub-regional needs for human and institutional capacity development in public health nutrition research and training. The second was the recent Assembly of Health Ministers of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) held in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire in July, 2009, where a strong set of resolutions were issued calling for action on nutrition. The concluding recommendations of each of these conferences are described below, along with our own comments on the importance of regional and international advocacy for promoting nutrition policy development.
