Former President John Agyekum Kufuor proposes that nutrition, starting before birth, is the kernel of development in Africa.

John Agyekum Kufuor is the former President of Ghana, serving two terms from 2001 -2009, during which Ghana witnessed the fastest growth in its history; attaining a Middle-Income status by 2006 much earlier than the projected year of 2015. Since his retirement, President Kufuor has set up the John A Kufuor Foundation on Leadership, Governance and Development. He has also been active in promoting African solutions to combat hunger and malnutrition, key hindrances to development.
