Messages From The FANS President 2023-2027

Dear Members of the Federation of Asian Nutrition Societies (FANS) and All Nutritionists Across Asia,

It is a great honor for me to serve as President of Federation of Asian Nutrition Societies (FANS 2023-2027). Nutrition is one of the most fundamental requisites for human existence. Every discovery in the nutrition realm contributes immensely to the advancement of human progress. Today, the field of nutrition confronts new and complex issues daily. These ranges from combating malnutrition and ensuring food security to tackling the rise of non-communicable diseases and promoting sustainable diets. While these challenges are vast, they are not insurmountable. Together, as a scientific united force, we can address them with unwavering efforts and determination.

Asia is the most populous region in the world and its well-being has a profound impact on the global health landscape. FANS was born from the collective vision of delegates who convened at the 2nd Asian Congress of Nutrition (ACN) in Manila, The Philippines, in 1973. Today, we stand as a vibrant federation comprising 18 countries and regions, we are proud as a adhering body of the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS), a global organization uniting nutritionists worldwide.

For 50 years, FANS has played a pivotal role in fostering international fellowship among nutrition scientists throughout the region. Our mission, deeply rooted in collaboration, includes promoting cooperative working arrangements that advance nutrition research, training, and action programs. We are committed to facilitating the exchange of vital information and experiences in these domains among our member countries.

As we stand on the shoulders of giants who have paved the way, we must uphold FANS' mission with renewed vigor. By uniting across borders, embracing inclusivity, and harnessing the power of science, innovation, and collaboration, we can navigate the complexities of the modern nutritional landscape. Our goal is clear: to promote scientific research and innovation that underpins better health, well-being and longevity for all.

I am honored to lead FANS in this pivotal moment in our history. I firmly believe that science, invention, innovation, and their practical applications are at the heart of fostering good nutrition and enhancing health. We welcome all the nutrition societies in Asian countries to join us, let us work together in advancing the science of nutrition, striving for a healthier Asia, and building a sustainable future.

With utmost respect and dedication,

Prof. Yuexin YANG
