USAID Advancing Nutrition began working in Kenya in October 2020. The project strengthens government capacity to plan, finance, manage, and implement multi-sectoral nutrition interventions that improve the health of populations at risk of nutritional deficiencies. The work focuses on the national level and the three counties of Kakamega, Kisumu, and Kitui. In partnership with national and local government, USAID projects, United Nations agencies, civil society organizations, the private sector, and other key stakeholders, we aim to—
- improve multi-sectoral nutrition resource allocation in counties
- improve planning for nutrition in counties
- improve government-led multi-sectoral nutrition coordination platforms at the national and in counties.
The national and county-level plans developed through the co-creation initiative continue to inform sector priorities and various policy documents supported by USAID Advancing Nutrition.
