The 20th African Nutrition Leadership Programme (ANLP) is underway at the Elgro River Lodge. Although today was the start of the in-person component of ANLP 2022, the official programme started 5 weeks ago, on Thursday 3 February. This year, due to the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ANLP is being facilitated in a blended format, where online sessions have been conducted before participants arrived in Potchefstroom. Also due to safety considerations, there are fewer participants attending and the usual 10-day face-to-face component which will be facilitated over 7 days. This morning, 13 eager participants arrived from 8 different countries. Ten women and 3 men between the ages of 24 to 53 years make up the ANLP 2022 cohort.
