The 2013 Lancet Maternal and Child Nutrition series highlighted high-impact nutrition-specific interventions, but, to date, coverage of these actions remains far below targets. Multi-sectoral nutrition programming takes place in different domains and systems, which requires a range of capable institutions and workforces to deliver high-quality products and services. This type of programming also must be backed by political will, commitment of resources, and good governance.
Use of data for decision-making and accountability requires access to and use of robust information systems. Our work to increase country commitment and capacity supports and sustains nutrition interventions identified for scale-up, fostering an enabling environment that supports high-quality nutrition service delivery and behavior change.
Our work focuses on ensuring—
- adequate capacity for nutrition service delivery
- increased coordination across multi-sectoral actors
- strengthened systems for gathering and using nutrition data.
