The Agile Core Team for Nutrition Monitoring’s (ACT-NM) Analytical Framework is a new multi- sectoral tool that can better prepare policymakers and implementers to mitigate the impact of shocks on nutrition outcomes.

In addition to derailing progress made in recent years toward achieving the maternal, infant and young child nutrition targets endorsed by the World Health Assembly (WHA), COVID-19 delivered blows to many international, national, and subnational structures that support nutrition programs. While the impact of the pandemic continues to resonate, it also provides an opportunity to focus on lessons learned and prepare for future shocks to global systems, especially those that impact nutrition.
