USAID Advancing Nutrition worked in Nigeria from September 2021 to November 2023. To project worked to improve nutrition for a healthy, productive, and resilient Nigeria, we provided technical support, implemented innovative nutrition interventions, and generated evidence to enhance nutrition programming. The work focused on five states: Kebbi, Sokoto, Ebonyi, Bauchi, and Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Our objectives were to—

  • strengthen technical assistance and strategic nutrition integration to improve links between nutrition; health; water, sanitation, and hygiene; agriculture; family planning; and gender interventions
  • support a cohesive and sustainable plan to address wasting through increased coordination and collaboration
  • generate evidence and test innovative approaches to improve nutrition programming and inform future program designs.


USAID Advancing Nutrition supported USAID Nigeria in implementing its multi-sectoral nutrition strategy by working with the Government of Nigeria and a range of NGO and private sector stakeholders.
