USAID Advancing Nutrition, or USAID Promovendo a Nutrição, has worked in Mozambique since August 2019. Collaborating with USAID’s nutrition bilateral project, Transform Nutrition, we work to improve the nutrition of pregnant and lactating women, adolescent girls, and children under 2 years of age. In Nampula Province and at the national level, we aim to—

  • strengthen the government’s capacity to plan, manage, and deliver nutrition services
  • strengthen the government’s systems for multi-sectoral nutrition coordination
  • support partners’ capacity to deliver quality multi-sectoral nutrition programming
  • support USAID Mozambique’s nutrition team and portfolio.
