On February 1st, 2017, Dr. Fernande Djengbot, Minister of Health, Public hygiene and Population of Central African Republic, signed a letter of commitment to join the 58 SUN Countries and 3 Indian States in the SUN Movement, fighting to end malnutrition in all its forms.

Central African Republic’s experience in fighting malnutrition to date will be of value to share across the SUN Movement. Recent efforts include the development of a coherent policy and legal framework – the country has a Nutrition National Policy, a Plan on Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition, an Integrated Protocol for the Management of Acute Malnutrition. Despite these efforts, the Minister stressed in his letter that more needed to be done, particularly with a focus on the first 1000-day window of opportunity.
