Map of Tanzania

USAID Advancing Nutrition started working in Tanzania in November 2019 and ended its work in April 2023. 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 strengthened the government’s efforts by providing direct technical assistance at the national level. During our program, we—

  • strengthened 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
  • supported the development of the NMNAP II and its Common Results Framework
  • provided targeted technical assistance to USAID Tanzania’s implementing partners.


Participants strengthened nutrition data analysis, use, and dissemination skills to improve nutrition surveillance in the East and Central Africa region.
USAID Advancing Nutrition Tanzania held its close out event in conjunction with the second annual meeting of the Directors of Policy and Planning (DPP) including Departmental Directors.
The project supported the Intergovernmental Authority on Development to launch the Learning Network on Nutrition Surveillance taskforce to tackle food insecurity and malnutrition.
