Technical Report

Ghana has identified nutrition as a cornerstone of its human capital development efforts. To sustain and scale up the country’s efforts to improve the nutritional status of women and children, sustainable funding for effective nutrition and resilience activities at high coverage is needed. However, over the years, insufficient resources have been mobilized and allocated for implementing nutrition and resilience activities. Funding to this area is inadequate, irregular, and unpredictable. To support the Government of Ghana’s efforts to build capacity for optimal financing and strengthen district-level decision-making on planning and coordination, USAID Advancing Nutrition supported 8 of the 17 target districts in 4 regions in Northern Ghana to conduct an expenditure analysis of nutrition and resilience activities.
