Ms. Aminata Diop Ndoye

Executive Secretariat
National Nutrition Development Council, Senegal


Mr. Ka is, since 2011, the National Coordinator at the National Nutrition Coordination Committee (CLM) in Senegal. He is a public health and social development specialist with over 20 years of experience with maternal and child health and nutrition programming. He was part of the core team that initiated the nutrition policy reforms in 2001 that led to the creation of the CLM under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Office and the development of a national nutrition program.

As National Coordinator, Mr. Ka has overseen the continued scale up of the community program, which now reaches 80% of under-five children, the strengthening of the nation-wide platform for community-based service delivery, the diversification of funding sources for national nutrition programs and the participatory development of an inclusive multisectoral nutrition policy and strategic plan that includes the mainstreaming of nutrition in the different sectors. At the global level, Mr. Ka has also acted as an ardent champion for nutrition.
