USAID Advancing Nutrition began work in Nigeria in September 2021. To improve nutrition for a healthy, productive, and resilient Nigeria, we provide technical support, implement innovative nutrition interventions, and generate evidence to enhance nutrition programming. The work will focus on five states: Kebbi, Sokoto, Ebonyi, Bauchi, and Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Our objectives are 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.
