The 2024 Nutrition Congress will be hosted by NSSA and ADSA 


   29th Congress of the Nutrition Society of South Africa (NSSA)
 17th Congress of the Association for Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA)
A call for partners in food and nutrition to come together, work together and advance nutrition innovation and collaboration. 

We are excited to announce that the 2024 Nutrition Congress (#2024nutritioncongress) 
will take place in the coastal city of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, from 2 to 4 October 2024 with a thematic focus on 'Spearheading Nutrition for All.'

Multiple, complex challenges mar the nutrition landscape and impact the nutritional status, health and well-being of individuals and communities, with potential devastating consequences for future generations. At the same time, the health system is dynamic and progressing towards universal health coverage, offering both opportunities and challenges for nutrition to be placed as the foundation for optimal health.

Bringing practitioners, scientists, academia, policy makers, development partners and other food and nutrition stakeholders together, the 2024 Nutrition Congress will provide opportunities to elevate sharing and learning. It will also be a prominent platform to showcase cutting-edge research, participate in dialogue and lively discussions, enhance your professional development and forge partnerships.

The four presenting categories explore the latest science across nutrition, from the prevention and treatment of disease, through food and nutrition technology, to professional practice. Whatever your role is within food and nutrition, from critical care to food product development, this congress holds something for you.

2024 Nutrition Congress, where stakeholders come together to spearhead nutrition for all. We look forward to welcoming you.
See you at the seafront promenade!
