The National Nutrition Policy, adopted in February 2014, envisages a multi-sectoral coordination platform, the National Nutrition Committee, including all stakeholders at the central, regional and community levels. Until this institution is established, a working group, under the aegis of the Ministry of Health, brings together various sectors of government, the United Nations agencies and donors to share information on nutrition. Since 2011, the participants of the technical group also attend meetings of the Food and Nutritional Security Group (GSAN), which, under the rotating presidency of the WFP and the FAO, has brought together more than 30 institutions (NGOs, United Nations, technical and financial partners, state structures).
The National Alliance for Food Fortification (ANFA) initiated the salt iodisation strategy in 2012, with the support of UNICEF. It was officially established by an inter-ministerial decree in April 2014.
The Civil Society Network for Food and Nutritional Sovereignty and Security (RESSAN) has been in existence since November 2013. It was set up to coordinate the actions of its members intervening in food security and nutrition.
