Maternal, infant and young child nutrition in East and Southern African countries: moving to national implementation
Report of a World Health Organization workshop
This workshop was organized by the Intercountry Support Team (IST)/East and Southern Africa (ESA)/Nutrition Regional Office for Africa (AFRO) in collaboration with IST/West Africa, AFRO and the Department of Nutrition for Health and Development (NHD) at the World Health Organization (WHO) headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, with financial support from Micronutrient Initiative (MI).
The aim of the workshop was to present recently published WHO evidence-informed guidelines for nutrition actions, and to introduce participants to existing WHO tools available for supporting a constructive collaboration between the different stakeholders who have direct or indirect influence on the evidence-informed policy-making process at the national level. The updated guidelines are expected to assist implementing partners to reflect these changes in the existing national nutrition programmes being implemented at the country level.
