FANTA Review of Essential Nutrition Actions in Ethiopia

The Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance (FANTA) Project has announced the release of the Review of Incorporation of Essential Nutrition Actions into Public Health Programmes in Ethiopia Report (January 2008).

The Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA) package is an approach to expand the coverage of seven affordable and evidence-based actions to improve the nutritional status of women and children, especially those under two years of age. The review, requested by USAID/ Ethiopia, examined a number of facilitating and inhibiting factors to ENA integration in the context of Ethiopia's health system. It found that the approach has been incorporated into the Ethiopia Federal Ministry of Health system and multilateral and NGO programming. However, improved training and other steps are necessary to further institutionalise the approach.

Support for the synthesis report was provided by USAID's Bureau for Global Health's Office of Health, Infectious Disease and Nutrition and the USAID Mission in Ethiopia.
