Ten years of stories on implementing nutrition programmes in South Asia: Articles from ENN’s publications

The Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) aims to enhance the effectiveness of nutrition policy and programming around the world, working in partnership with others to improve knowledge, stimulate learning, build evidence and support practitioners and decision-makers involved in nutrition and related interventions. We are passionate about being practitioner-led, objective, and are looked to by stakeholders across the globe as facilitators, catalysts and curators of learning and innovation in nutrition. 

ENN’s flagship peer-to-peer publication, Field Exchange (together with the previously published Nutrition Exchange magazine) publishes operational experiences and learning related to nutrition in high-burden contexts. 

Over the last ten years, ENN has published a wealth of articles from the South Asia region, many of which have been focused on the nutrition of women and girls. We were also proud to publish several editions specifically focussed on the region including a Special Issue on Child Wasting in South Asia (link) – published together with UNICEF, a publication on Maternal Nutrition in South Asia as well as a publication dedicated to improving the diets of young children in the region (link).

We also have a long history of working on issues related to maternal and adolescent nutrition with a special edition of Field Exchange focusing on nutrition in adolescents and school-aged children (link) (2021).Related to adolescent nutrition, ENN has published an adolescent nutrition mapping study exploring global policies, research, interventions and data gaps (link), developed a research roadmap for improving nutrition during middle childhood and adolescence by 2032 (link) and published a report on priority targets and indicators of nutritional status and intervention coverage for children and adolescents (link).

ENN leads a established network focussing on adolescent nutrition and made up of researchers, academics, programmers, government representatives, donors, and UN agencies. This network, known as the Global Adolescent Nutrition Network (GANN) hosts quarterly calls and invites new members to be a part of its network.

In the women’s nutrition space, ENN has developed a technical briefing paper on nutrition of women and adolescent girls in humanitarian contexts: a current state of play (link) and a report on women’s nutrition: a summary of evidence, policy and practice including adolescent and maternal life stages (link).

ENN has enjoyed working with many partners in the region, including UNICEF who have been so supportive of the work that we do, and we look forward to increasing our collaboration with the region in the next ten years.
