The Zero Hunger Lab is a cross-disciplinary network of food security and nutrition advocates and experts, including government workers, clinicians, engineers, policy, public health, and private sector actors along the healthcare and governance value chains.
Technology alone is not enough to transform global health and too often, resources are indiscriminately thrown at problems without understanding what actually works. Furthermore, technology can't simply be transferred from developed countries to resource-limited settings, as solutions that work in one context, usually need to be adapted to be sustainable in another locale.
We engage multidisciplinary teams from multiple universities and organizations and work together with public health professionals, researchers and frontliners on the ground, to develop technological and social innovations that can scale up to address the needs of at least 1 million individuals in terms of food security and nutrition.
