#SenegalNutrition

Great progress has been made in the fight against malnutrition in Senegal over the last 15 years. Due in part to government commitment to multi-sector nutrition programming, the stunting prevalence rate fell from 29.5% in 2000 to 19.4% in 2014. To capitalise on this gain, a national nutrition policy was launched in 2015 and now the government is on the brink of releasing a new, multi-sector, strategic nutrition plan.

SecureNutrition[1] has taken up the call to support the Government of Senegal’s efforts by launching an information hub, www.securenutrition.org/senegal, and social media campaign, #SenegalNutrition, to encourage investment in nutrition in Senegal. SecureNutrition will also be hosting a new technical series, Analysis & Perspective: 15 Years of Experience in the Development of Nutrition Policy in Senegal, on nutrition policy, political economy, financing, capacity and scale-up throughout 2017.

These efforts support Senegal’s nutrition coordination unit, Cellule de Lutte Contre la Malnutrition (CLM), which is housed in the Office of the Prime Minister and led by the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) country focal point. Learn more about the efforts of the CLM by reading an interview in Nutrition Exchange Issue 7[2] or listening to a podcast on the ENN Media Hub[3]; a conversation between Ambarka Youssoufane, ENN’s regional West Africa knowledge management specialist, and Abdoulaye Ka, CLM National Director and Senegal SUN Focal Point.
