It’s our great privilege and special pleasure to invite you to the “7th International Congress on Maternal Infant Nutrition in the First 1000 Days” which will be held by YISAV between 27-30 March 2019 at CVK Park Bosphorus Hotel in İstanbul, Turkey.

Congress Description:
As you know, a child’s future health is largely determined in the first 1000 days after conception, meaning pregnancy the first two years of childhood. Proper nutrition, birth type, breastfeeding during this period is very important and this is supported by many scientific works. Malnutrition in the first 1000 days not only leads to the risk of chronic diseases and psychiatric disorders, but also causes physical, mental and metabolic malfunctions, epigenetic changes and problems in brain development and functions. Maternal stress, unnecessary use of antibiotics or corticosteroids, and toxic exposures lead to the changes mother’s microbiota, weakens immune system, which in turn may cause increase in infections like diarrhea, pneumonia and other atopic diseases. Improper nutrition in the first 1000 days is one of the important factors that can increase mother-child death rate.

Despite all the socio-economic and cultural changes in developing countries, improper and insufficient nutrition are still remaining. Giving too many births, adolescent and late age pregnancies, time period less than two years between pregnancies, high rates of cesarean births, common use of antibiotics and glucocorticosteroids and lack of knowledge about nutrition, difficulties for reaching the essential nutrients, increased frequency of anemia and diabetes during pregnancy, increased cesarean delivery rates, even if the rate of breast feeding is high during the first 24 hours, and rapidly decreasing and early quitting of breast feeding is fairly high are problems which should be solved by us.

YISAV is a non-governmental organization that works in the field of reproductive health since it was founded in 1995. YISAV works to raise awareness of our colleagues and society about the importance of nutrition, fetal programming and micobiota in the first 1000 days and provides its sustainability. With this purpose, YISAV organizes the congress with the support of Turkish Ministry of Health since 2013. Pediatricians, obstetricians, family physicians, public health specialists, dietitians, nurses and midwives participated in the congresses. National and international participants from similar areas will attend the congress. A detailed program was prepared by the organizing committee. All the speakers are the international experts on their fields.
