In the MaNuEL Knowledge Hub, scientists with complementary expertise from 22 institutions in seven countries have worked together for two years to summarize and improve the current scientific knowledge about different aspects of malnutrition in older persons – namely prevalence, screening, etiology/determinants, interventions, policy and education.

One main objective of MaNuEL was to harmonize methods and strengthen evidence-based practice.
