Improving Nutrition Services in the Care of the Ill and Vulnerable Newborn and Child

Child illness and child undernutrition often coexist, so addressing both simultaneously is necessary to ensure that children survive and thrive. Recognizing this, in October 2018, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), and USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP), hosted the Improving Nutrition Services in the Care of the Ill and Vulnerable Newborn and Child Workshop in Accra, Ghana. At the workshop, representatives from global technical institutions worked with seven country delegations to create country action plans to strengthen nutrition services delivered to children under-five through routine management of illnesses at home, in the community, and at primary health facilities.

Join USAID Advancing Nutrition and USAID’s MCSP to learn about important outcomes from this workshop and to discuss progress made at the country level to institutionalize and operationalize country action plans. During this webinar, we are delighted to have Ghana and Mali country teams share their perspective and to launch the workshop report.
