Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)


In 2022, the Liberia National Legislature supported the enactment of the Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes, which was passed by the House of Representatives on 22 March. However, the Senate is being engaged for concurrence on the bill.


The SUN Secretariat, in collaboration with UN-Nutrition, conducted an action mapping of nutrition stakeholders nationwide to determine nutrition actions at national and subnational levels.


The SUN Multisectoral and Multi-Stakeholder Platform (MSP) has been advocating for increased government allocation for nutrition through the national budget.


In November 2022, the SUN Secretariat was revitalized, staffed and repositioned within the Office of the Vice-President of Liberia. The Vice-President is now the SUN National Convener and Chair of the Nutrition and Food Security Steering Committee. The MSP coordination mechanism at the subnational level is gradually evolving and embracing nutrition actions as a priority.
