  4. 4. What are the key National interventions to tackle malnutrition in your country? Key interventions • High Impact Nutrition Interventions: • Integrated management of acute malnutrition • Exclusive breast feeding • Complementary feeding • Improved Hygiene practices • Vitamin A supplementation • Zinc supplementation • Iron folate supplementation • Deworming • Iron Folate supplementation of pregnant women • Food fortification • Salt Iodization challenges • Low Funding • Weak multi-sectoral collaboration in tackling malnutrition • Marginalization of nutrition in the home sectors • Low demand for nutrition services • Weak capacity on nutrition advocacy • Low utilization of information for decision making Lessons learnt • Advocacy is very important for both supply and demand for services. More duty bearers-rights holders platform needed. • Working with the key government agencies for leadership and advocacy for resources allocation for scaling up nutrition is likely more successful as opposed to advocating alone. • Nutrition sensitive interventions, if given equal priorities as nutrition sensitive, can greatly improve nutrition status of the country- need for strong MSP 4SUN Civil Society Efforts | October 2016

  8. 8. CSA call For Action Statement 1. Failing to invest in nutrition can lead to huge economic losses. National and county governments must prioritise budget allocations for nutrition in their planning by creating specific nutrition budget lines and focus investments on High Impact Nutrition Interventions to maximise the results on the ground. 2. The development partners and the donor community to - at a minimum - double the share of their budgets allocated to improving nutrition to tackle malnutrition in Kenya. • The Government of Kenya needs to fast-track the establishment and high- level positioning of multi-sectoral platforms on food and nutrition security, at both national and county levels, to coordinate and maximize nutrition- related dialogues, investments and actions from all sectors. 8SUN Civil Society Efforts | October 2016
