This rapid review used a systematic search strategy to identify available evidence on adolescent nutrition and interventions to improve nutritional status. The goal of the review is to support the development of evidence-based programs and policies and to inform the West Africa Health Organization and policymakers in the region of existing evidence, gaps, and future opportunities. Most studies identified by the review focused on prevalence of nutrition outcomes, rather than programs, and were concentrated in 3 countries (Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana).
