Map of Burkina Faso

USAID Advancing Nutrition worked in Burkina Faso from November 2020 to October 2023. Collaborating with the Government of Burkina Faso and other key stakeholders, the project worked to improve results-based planning for targeted nutrition results. This was accomplished by building knowledge, strengthening capacity, and improving access to existing information about the drivers of undernutrition and information about best practices in Burkina Faso. In South West, Center West, and Center East regions, we—

  • strengthened institutional capacity of the Government of Burkina Faso and stakeholders for the development, implementation, and accountability of nutrition interventions
  • strengthened data-driven decision making for nutrition using available nutrition-related documentation and data
  • supported social and behavior change nutrition interventions.


An NPI-supported project coordinated a range of community-based activities to prevent and manage cases of severe and moderate acute malnutrition.
