Since 2019, USAID Advancing Nutrition has supported nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive policies, programs, interventions, and systems to realize our vision of a world where countries, communities, and families are well nourished, resilient, and able to thrive. At a time when more than 45 million children under 5 are wasted and 571 million women and girls of reproductive age are anemic, we are committed to helping USAID answer the call for change by supporting its strategies for multi-sectoral nutrition and global food security.

Expanding Country Presence
USAID Advancing Nutrition works globally and locally, in 12 countries and regions, to design, implement, and evaluate programs that strengthen local capacity and support behavior change to strengthen the enabling environment for better nutrition. This year, the project launched seven new country programs, offering greater opportunity for local implementation, whether through research, collaboration, and coordination support to country governments, or the development and testing of national or global guidelines and tools, and an opportunity to learn and share what works in different contexts across countries.
