Rapidly-emerging evidence and innovations have resulted in a wealth of knowledge about nutrition’s critical role in health and physical, intellectual, and emotional development. USAID Advancing Nutrition captures, presents, and builds on lessons generated from current and past USAID investments in implementation, measurement, evaluation, and research.

Our knowledge management team curates and shares this knowledge for use across the nutrition, health, and development community.

Our work:

  • Translates and synthesizes complex technical nutrition findings into easily-digestible language to describe these findings, innovations, tools, and models.
  • Packages the information using formats that are accessible to a broad multi-sectoral audience
  • Supports country partners to apply and share evidence and learning.
