Malnutrition in Spain and Europe: making visible the invisible

On November 27, the Alianza Masnutridos is hosting a policy workshop at the European Parliament Offices in Madrid, that aims to raise greater recognition and awareness of the importance of disease-related malnutrition (DRM) among patients, health professionals, politicians and public health administration.

The primary objective of the event is to highlight the impact of disease-related malnutrition and to advocate for stronger policies and initiatives at both the national and European levels. The active involvement of members of the European Parliament and national political representatives, in the agenda of the day, makes the event particularly significant. With Spain’s current presidency in the European Parliament, this workshop offers a unique opportunity to catalyze meaningful change and stimulate collaboration across the European Union.

By combining the forces of advocacy, political leadership, and media visibility, the event seeks to make a lasting impact in the fight against malnutrition, not only within Spain but also on the European stage.
