Photovoice: A Wellness Journey Through Madagascar

Join The Monroe Trust, with special guest speaker, Mathias Pollack, a senior technical advisor with PSI as we explore both the challenges of child malnutrition and the promising impact of micronutrient fortification as seen through the lens of the local Malagasy community. Learn about his life changing efforts surrounding his pilot initiative to distribute micronutrient powders (MNPs) through a network of social franchise clinics and community health promoters.

Madagascar has one of the highest burdens of chronic malnutrition in the world. Only 13% of kids under the age of two receive the minimal acceptable diet, according to the World Health Organization.

Food security continues to be an issue in Madagascar and throughout the world. “Photovoice is a very empowering tool for people to explain the issues facing their community and advocate for change”. With the power of photography, experience a story told by parents and medical practitioners as they detail the influence of nutritional intake in their home, on the other side of the world.
