Ghana signaled its commitment to join the SUN Movement on 25 March 2011.
To advance their commitment to scaling up nutrition, the government has established a multi-stakeholder platform, the Cross-Sectoral Planning Group (CSPG), under the National Development Planning Commission. At the policy level, the Ghana National Nutrition Policy is in draft form, though there are currently a number of strategies in place covering nutrition-specific interventions including infant and child feeding and anemia control.
The SUN Government Focal Point is working with SUN Technical Specialists, donors, civil society and the research and technical communities to establish a common results framework though which cross-sector stakeholders can align programmes around shared goals to improve nutrition. Through the CSPG the country is also working to establish a baseline and identify trends in nutrition financing.
