USAID Advancing Nutrition has worked in Burkina Faso since November 2020. Collaborating with the Government of Burkina Faso and other key stakeholders, we work to improve results-based planning for targeted nutrition results. This will be done by building knowledge and strengthening capacity for results-based planning and by 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 aim to—

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