ENN Online Nutrition Exchange Issue 11 – January 2019
Launched in January 2019, ENN’s Nutrition Exchange Issue 11 features articles on stunting prevention in Indonesia; parliamentarian networks for nutrition in West Africa; SUN Networks in fragile and conflicte-affedted sates; interview with Mali’s SUN focal point; and the development of a common results framework for nutrition in Somalia, among other topics.
“Although we had not planned NEX11 to be themed, a common (and recurrent) thread emerges from the country articles: how to achieve effective coordination for nutrition in different contexts, with different stakeholders and through various mechanisms. Clearly, this is an overarching concern of the countries featured, many of whom are part of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement. It is some years since it was first claimed that malnutrition is “everyone’s business and nobody’s responsibility”. We can see from the articles in this issue that a more coordinated response to tackling the problem at all levels – from global to community – is emerging”
