USAID Advancing Nutrition, or USAID Promovendo a Nutrição, worked in Mozambique from August 2019 until the project's successful completion in March 2023. Over the course of nearly four years, the project collaborated with USAID’s nutrition bilateral project, Transform Nutrition, 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, the project aimed to—

  2. Strengthen the government’s systems for multi-sectoral nutrition coordination
  3. Support partners’ capacity to deliver quality multi-sectoral nutrition programming
  4. Support USAID Mozambique’s nutrition team and portfolio.
