Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)


The establishment of the National Multisectoral Nutrition Committee (CNMN) has confirmed the commitment of the Government at the highest level under the aegis of the Prime Minister. It will be responsible for the implementation and review of the 2019-2024 National Multisectoral Strategic Plan for Nutrition (PSNMN). The adoption of laws on the code of marketing of breast-milk substitutes is in progress, as well as the development of a plan to systematise vitamin A supplementation and a plan to scale up the promotion of breastfeeding without water.


The country has just concluded a SMART survey, which provides new information on the nutritional status in Guinea, as well as a better vision of the main indicators. This study also makes it possible to align priorities and improve resource mobilisation. The organisation of a round table of donors is still planned alongside a possible revision of the PSNMN. A roadmap is being developed with support from the SUN Movement to ensure sustainable investment in nutrition in Guinea. In addition to technical and financial support from partners (UNICEF, WFP, WHO, Helen Keller International, Nutrition International, NutriGuinée), capacities in terms of multisectorality and intersectoral coordination must be strengthened.


In particular, the country has succeeded in building the capacity of midwives in breastfeeding, as well as that of providers specialised in the feeding of infant and young child, and providers of the in-house Nutritional Recovery Centre. Les enquêtes SMART permettent d’assurer le suivi des actions même si le pays ne dispose pas de plan de suivi et d’évaluation et la plateforme SIMGuinée permet de suivre le prix des denrées alimentaires sur les marchés afin de mieux planifier les besoins. The Government is striving to mobilise domestic resources (BND) to finance nutrition within the framework of the African Partnership for Children (EAP) in order to strengthen the capacities of the nutrition sector.


The decree merging the National Multisectoral Nutrition Committee and the National Food System Committee has just been adopted under the coordination of the Prime Minister. This will ensure better coordination of the nutrition sector, and revitalise all platforms at all levels.
