A large number of the world population are affected bye diseases caused by contaminated food and water. from 11 to 13 milion children lass than 5 years die every year due to undernutrition and infectious diseases. increasing public awareness of nutritional problems worldwide, promoting effective astrtegies and actions to address these problems, and encouraging the political commitment necessary to do so were primary purposes for holding the ICN.
