Professor Thandi Puoane

Professor Puoane leads the School of Public Health at the University of the Western Cape. Her research areas include improving the hospital management of severe malnutrition and the prevention of risk factors for noncommunicable and chronic diseases, especially in light of the growing obesity crisis. Professor Puoane has urged several interventions to reduce these risk factors and for attention to be given to the labelling of animal-derived foods as to content and production methods.
