Map of Democratic Republic of the Congo

USAID Advancing Nutrition works with a range of nutrition stakeholders in the Democratic Republic of Congo, including the government, implementing partners, and UN agencies to better understand and document ways to strengthen the quality and continuity of interventions to treat and prevent wasting in children under 5. Our work focuses on documentation and learning around the following themes:

  • Strengthening stakeholder coordination and collaboration across the nutrition continuum of care, particularly between emergency and development actors and programs.
  • Identifying effective actions and recommendations to strengthen coordination and collaboration for improved outcomes.
  • Analyzing and costing the last mile of the ready-to-use therapeutic food supply chain.
