USAID Advancing Nutrition worked in Ghana from June 2020 to December 2023. In partnership with the Government of Ghana, we provided technical support and assessment services to improve district planning for equitable delivery of services that promoted household resilience and early childhood growth and development. We aimed to—
- improve country coordination for nutrition and resilience
- strengthen multi-sectoral collaboration to develop guidance and tools for food security and nutrition to inform the Government’s medium-term development plan
- strengthen district-level decision-making on program planning, financing, and implementation for nutrition and resilience
- strengthen local government to integrate multi-sectoral, evidence-based nutrition strategies in district development plans.
We also gathered evidence to guide investments that USAID, the Government of Ghana, and other stakeholders make in early childhood development services for children ages 0–3 years, and we captured experiences and learning about growth monitoring and promotion approaches in Ghana.
