Key regional actors agree joint Nutrition working plan

In February 2019, Transform Nutrition West Africa, Alive & Thrive, and UNICEF participated in a dialogue in Bobo Dialassou, Burkina Faso to agree upon key nutritional activities to collaborate on with the West African Health Organisation (WAHO). WAHO outlined their priority activities in the region and ongoing regional initiatives and TNWA, A&T ECOWAS, and UNICEF RISING presented their joint tripartite workplan as well as ongoing bilateral activities. A number of complementarities and opportunities for joint working and planning were identified for the next two years. Bringing together these objectives ensures coherence and coordination on nutrition actions across various fields (technical, research, and policy) with a focus on early child nutrition, adolescent girls, and women.
