Since 2020, USAID Advancing Nutrition has been applying a systems-oriented approach to nutrition programming in Kenya. Our multi-sectoral program strengthened government capacity to improve the health of populations at risk of nutritional deficiencies in three Kenyan counties (subnational)—Kakamega, Kisumu, and Kitui. The program sought to improve stakeholder collaboration for nutrition planning, resource allocation, and coordination by connecting national and local government, international agency, civil society organization, and community partners. In doing so, we identified the need to connect with the private sector more.

This learning brief summarizes that approach, its successes and challenges, and our lessons learned through our program in Kenya for the benefit of others working in and with communities across the globe.
