Several research initiatives on the determinants of anaemia and growth retardation are underway or in preparation.
The Government of Senegal has created the National Nutrition Development Council (CNDN) to coordinate the implementation of the national nutrition development policy. Among other achievements in 2022, the CNDN obtained funding for studies on the determinants of anaemia in Senegal, and these studies are planned for 2023. The results will be used to design more effective interventions. Senegal has also obtained funding for several sectoral projects with a nutrition component (agriculture, health, education, etc.).
