Introduction

The Suaahara Programme focuses on improving health and nutrition behaviours at the household level through promotion of Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA), particularly Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF), and addressing other determinants of under-nutrition, such as availability of and access to food, hygiene, quality health care, child spacing and socio-cultural factors including gender and marginalization.

Objectives

• To understand the roles and responsibilities of multi-sectoral bodies at national, district, and sub-district levels towards nutrition and how these bodies function and coordinate

• To understand Suaahara’s contribution to facilitating better coordination for nutrition among government structures at national, district, and sub-district levels

• To discover facilitators and barriers/challenges of coordination among different bodies involved in nutrition programming, including during implementation

• To document the process through which policies, plans, and budgets are designed and implemented for promotion of health and nutrition at national, district, and sub-district levels
