Malnutrition rates remain alarming: stunting is declining too slowly while wasting still impacts the lives of far too many young children Prevalence – Global Overview Percentage of stunted, wasting, overweight children under 5, by UN sub-region Source: UNICEF, WHO, World Bank Group Joint Child Malnutrition Estimates, 2018 edition. See Notes on the Data section on why only one time point is presented for wasting on the graphs above.

  8. 8. Goal: to improve and support policy and program decisions and actions to accelerate reductions in maternal and child undernutrition in West Africa, through an inclusive process of knowledge generation and mobilization. •Objective 1: Assess and analyze nutrition-relevant data and actions (programs and policies) to generate knowledge on optimal approaches to improving maternal and child nutrition. •Objective 2: Mobilize knowledge to strengthen enabling environments, and inform and improve nutrition-relevant policy and programming.
  9. 9. 11 A regional platform to enable effective policy and programmatic action on nutrition Knowledge generation Knowledge Mobilisation
  10. 10. Stakeholder engagement Unique and relevant perspectives; dialogue enhancing mutual understanding Evidence synthesis The WHA indicators along the 5PD process; assessment of data and evidence gaps Regional consultation • Consultation: stakeholders discuss findings, and generate priorities for action and for research. Validation of prioritized agenda Ongoing dialogue, consultation, and collaboration Process Workplan for delivery phase Based on the prioritized agenda, developed the workplan Our approach
  11. 11. PROBLE M POLICY PROGRAMPRIORITIE S PEOPLE PROBLEM What are the nutritional problems? POLICY What is in the relevant policies to address these problems? PROGRAM Are there relevant programs being implemented? PEOPLE Who are the key people and organisations responsible for these policies and programs? PRIORITIES What are their perceptions regarding priorities, gaps, opportunities? DATA GAPS Are there sufficient data and evidence to inform the implementation of relevant policies and programs?

Editor's Notes

  • The next 10 minutes I will share TNWA’s experience and approach of how to strengthen the enabling enviornment for nutrition in WA, applied to maternal nutrition.
  • This project is a new regional platform to enable effective policy and programmatic action on nutrition and it has two core objectives.
    We aim to assess and analyze nutrition-relevant data and programs and policies to generate knowledge on optimal approaches
    And then mobilize this knowledge to strengthen enabling environments and inform nutrition-relevant decision-making
    With the ultimate goal to improving maternal and child nutrition.
    West Africa region
    4 focal countries: Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Burkina Faso
  • Process slide to reflect the general process of TNWA, including the inception phase.
  • Transforming the enabling environment for maternal nutrition interventions requires knowledge on optimal approaches to inform the decision-making process related to this.
    TNWA adopted the 5PD process as shown here.
    Explain the process and state that each step plays a role in creating an enabling environment.
    The presentation will show how we use this approach to identify the data gaps, applied to maternal nutrition.
