Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)
The country has worked well in developing good policy documents that guide areas for nutrition intervention. The Kenya Nutrition Action Plan and the Food and Nutrition Security Policy are the main documents from which nutrition gets its guidance for implementation.
The country contextualized the SUN 3.0 Strategy to its country-specific strategy in an effort to align country actions with global SUN priorities.
Various trainings and other efforts have been undertaken to ensure the continuation of capacity-strengthening for nutrition, targeting officers at implementation and planning levels for improved nutrition outcomes.
The SUN Government Focal Point is from the Ministry of Health, and the SUN Networks have within them officers from the Government, either as members or as part of the secretariat. This helps the country ensure that the actions of the networks align with the country's priorities and help the Government achieve them. Additionally, the SUN Networks in the country derive their mandates from government policy documents and action plans.
