SPRING through the seasons

View this article as a pdf

The Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) project has now closed. SPRING was funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), under a seven-year cooperative agreement, and implemented by a team of experts from JSI Research and Training Institute Inc, Helen Keller International (HKI), the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Save the Children, and the Manoff Group. SPRING’s goal was to strengthen global and country efforts to scale up high-impact nutrition practices and policies to prevent stunting and maternal and child anaemia in the first 1,000 days. In its lifetime, SPRING supported hundreds of institutions, shared thousands of resources, hosted 100 events and trained more than 168,000 people in nutrition1, fostering many diverse, multi-sector partnerships for governments and local partners to build on. Although the project has closed, SPRING’s website remains available. Much of the learning related to critical nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive topics has been documented and is available in a specially curated section of SPRING’s website.2

A JSI-led consortium is now being established to implement USAID’s flagship global multi-sector nutrition programme. The launch of the programme will be announced in due course.
