Participants attending the pre-congress workshop called on the IPA to resolve:-
- Paediatricians and related health professionals take responsibility for leadership in addressing the problem of severe malnutrition in all its forms as a major cause of death and disability of children that requires urgent action by all relevant social actors.
- IPA member societies should assure that all Paediatricians and related health professionals have the identification and treatment of severe malnutrition as a core competency and be certified accordingly.
- National Societies should examine the curriculum, training activities and evaluation processes to ensure the inclusion of the identification and treatment of severe malnutrition as a core competency.
