The sixth of a series of seminars of the African Nutrition Leadership Programme (ANLP) will be held in South Africa from 11-21 March 2008.
What is the ANLP?

The African Nutrition Leadership Programme (ANLP) is a leadership development and networking seminar aimed at assisting the development of future leaders in the field of human nutrition in Africa. The initiative to start an ANLP originates from the success with the European Nutrition Leadership Programme in Europe. Emphasis is placed on understanding the qualities and skills of leaders, team building, communication and nutrition information in a broader context, and to understanding the role of nutrition science in the world around us.

The initial stimulus for an ANLP was given by Wageningen University (the Netherlands) based on the success with the programme in Europe and from the activities initiated by the Food & Nutrition Programme of United Nations Universities and the International Union of Nutrition Sciences with respect to capacity development in nutrition in Africa. The fifth of a series of seminars of the ANLP (November 2006) will run in South Africa, and plans are underway to host the seminar in other African countries in the future.


Who is the ANLP aimed at?

The programme is designed for individuals who have experience in various fields of nutrition. Preference will be given to final year PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and candidates with comparable working experience in the broader human nutrition sciences, studying or working in Africa. We are also actively seeking applications from participants who are under the age of 40 years.
Where will the ANLP be held?

The sixth of a series of seminars of the African Nutrition Leadership Programme (ANLP) will be held in South Africa from 11-21 March 2008 under the Directorship of Johann Jerling (North-West University, South Africa) and Kombi Mbhenyane (University of Venda, South Africa).

The venue of the ANLP 2008 seminar will be the tranquil Raaswater Resort situated on the banks of the Vaal River in the North West Province of South Africa. The venue was selected to facilitate in networking and getting to know one another in an informal rustic atmosphere.
