Data and Strong ties or collaboration at Districts level are Vital in Stunting Reduction
Lack of district data and too little collaboration are among the setbacks holding back efforts to reduce stunting in Tanzania.
To gain commitment at lower level require access and use of their own generated data for planning and decision making.
With support from World Food Programme (WFP) and Prime Minister Office (PMO), a 'Catalyst Team' has been established to accelerate the implementation of the Tanzania NMNAP , including stunting reduction, and the provision of evidence based information to the Multisectoral Nutrition Technical Working Group (MNTWG).
This team is formed of 6 staff from the PORALG and the TFNC and a team leader, Ester Elisaria from Ifikara Health Institute. It was launched on the 13th November.
The team underscores the commitment to building a strong nutrition system in Tanzania through fostering alliances, networking and collaboration among stakeholders at national, regional and council levels.
