The 22nd SUN Country Network Meeting will take place from 25th to 29th January 2016.
In the coming months, a large number of SUN Countries will embark upon (or have already begun), the process of developing their next cycle of plans that will outline actions for improving nutrition. Many of these countries have asked for guidance to help ground the global level energy for nutrition in ambitious but achievable national level targets. Several countries have already set targets and begun implementation of their priority actions.
For these reasons, the upcoming 22nd meeting of the SUN Country Network will focus its thematic discussion around country experiences in relation to setting national level nutrition targets and corresponding commitments to action to achieve these targets. A detailed concept note is attached for your information.
Each of the teleconference meetings will provide the opportunity for one country to present its experience setting national nutrition targets and commitments to actions, taking into consideration the WHA global targets to improve maternal, infant, and young child nutrition, and the nutrition-related targets of the WHA global monitoring framework for non-communicable diseases. Following the presentation, other countries participating in the teleconference will have the opportunity to share and learn more on the methods used and the process of setting the targets.
