SUN movement tributes to Dr. Nasreen Khan
The SUN movement, the global Scaling Up Nutrition has tribute to Dr Nasreen Khan saying the nutritionist as a ‘true champion’ for improving nutrition in Bangladesh and all over the world. Dr Nasreen Khan, the nutritionist died of a cardiac attack at a Dhaka hospital on Sunday morning. The SUN movement, a platform of all governments, civil society, UN, donors, businesses and researchers to improve nutrition, shared the news with a ‘heavy heart’. Dr.Nasreen Khan was a long-time Deputy Programme Manager of the National Nutrition Services and SUN Technical Advisor in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. “Her personal drive, commitment and belief that a mutli-stakeholder and multi-sector approach – is the only approach to ending malnutrition, was infectious and she made everyone feel it was possible. She inspired all around her,” the network wrote on its website. The SUN movement website also wrote: “When we talk about nutrition champions – she embodied everything that a champion should be. She helped convene sectors, when few saw the value in it – and was a formidable advocate for ensuring Bangladesh’s response to the issue of malnutrition was holistic, involving the action of many.” Nasreen consulted, widely with passion and energy. Facilitating advocacy workshops, leading Behaviour Change Communication Working Group discussions, leading the charge on the National Nutrition Policy, convening journalist workshops to monitor the BMS code, collaborating on the National Plan of Action for Nutrition – was all in a day’s work for Nasreen, the SUN expressed. Nasreen was a powerful voice for nutrition globally and her words and enduring commitment will guide others for many years to come. Her passion was infectious and you could always count on her to rally a room full of people with some colourful words:“We need more trust more commitment and more champions. Nutrition is not about investment, it is about political will.” The SUN Movement extended their deepest sympathies to Nasreen’s family, friends and all the people she inspired so much.
