USAID Advancing Nutrition started working in Tanzania in November 2019. The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania has taken a multi-sectoral approach to address malnutrition, committing to high-level initiatives at the global and national levels. USAID Advancing Nutrition will strengthen the government’s efforts by providing direct technical assistance at the national level. We aim to—
- strengthen the capacity of the Prime Minister’s Office and the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Council to facilitate the integration of nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific components of their National Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Action Plan (NMNAP) across key line ministries
- support the development of the NMNAP II and its Common Results Framework
- provide targeted technical assistance to USAID Tanzania’s implementing partners.
