Zambia: High Level Delegation of Cooperating Partners Visit Zambia to Monitor Nutrition Progress
From the 1st to 4th December 2013, a large delegation of senior donor officials visited Zambia to look at the current state of nutrition in the country and government’s progress to scale up nutrition interventions. The officials are members of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement which is providing support to strengthen country-led efforts to improve nutrition for all.
The visiting delegation attended a series of high level meetings with senior government officials to discuss opportunities and challenges that Zambia faces to significantly reduce its current high levels of under-nutrition. They will also meet with Zambia’s SUN Civil Society Alliance and representatives of the private sector to discuss their potential role in improving nutrition levels and preventing stunting in young children. The delegation also took part in field visits to a variety of nutrition programmes in Chipata, Mumbwa and Chongwe.
