Available to USAID and its partners, USAID Advancing Nutrition provides technical assistance at both the global and country levels. We assess and offer solutions for evolving implementation issues, convene technical discussions, create tools, and develop guidance. Because our team of staff and consultants have roots in both emergency and development approaches, they are uniquely suited to provide implementation programming support in fragile and low-resource environments across sectors to support better nutrition outcomes. USAID Advancing Nutrition can ensure that nutrition outcomes are optimized through nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive approaches, are appropriate for the context, and align with best practices and USAID policy.
