A key mission of Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF) is to advocate for implementing strategies to prevent, detect and treat malnutrition. This includes developing knowledge translation materials that aim to educate, raise awareness and engage healthcare providers, the public (including patients and their families) and policy makers in promoting and taking appropriate action. 

CMTF is working to increase the awareness of the impact of malnutrition and the importance of food and nutrition care with government officials.
