ENN’s Azaria Morgan joins Dr. Fatima AK Sallam, a Project Manager at Soul for Development and Charity Zvandaziva, a Nutrition Specialist working for UNICEF Yemen to discuss community engagement and leadership in enabling increased access to nutrition and health services. The podcast highlights the work of the Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) in pioneering the project and supporting the Village Development Committees in achieving self-sufficiency.
In this podcast (Part II of this two-part series) we continue the conversation about Technical Assistance (TA) provided to SUN countries under the DFID funded TAN Programme. In the previous podcast we spoke to the global coordinators in the two providers of TA under TAN – Nutrition International and the MQSUN+ consortium (lead by PATH).
In this podcast, we speak with Dr. May Win Shwe, the Deputy Director of the Livestock Breeding and Irrigation Department in the Ministry of Agriculture in Myanmar. Dr. May discusses the use and influence of the Compendium of Actions for Nutrition (CAN) developed by the UN Network for SUN Secretariat in consultation with the UN partner agencies. The compendium is a facilitation resource intended to foster multi-sectoral dialogue at the country level. It includes matrices of potential multi-sectoral nutrition actions as well as accompanying narratives and bibliographies.
In this podcast (Part I of two podcasts in this series) we talk to providers of Technical Assistance (TA) under the DFID funded TAN Programme. The TAN Programme provides TA to support to countries in the SUN Movement and to the global SUN Movement Secretariat in Geneva. In this podcast ENN’s Global Knowledge Management Coordinator, Tui Swinnen talks to the global TA coordinators from the two TA providers working under TAN: Loretta MacKinnon, Programme Director of the Nutrition International TAN team and Monica Kothari, Deputy MQSUN+/Monitoring & Evaluation Lead from PATH, the lead agency in the MQSUN+ consortium.
In this video, Dr. Uma Koirala describes the role of the SUN Civil Society Alliance in Nepal. She emphasises the need for civil society to advocate for nutrition at all levels; from the national, policy making level through to the district levels.
May Thukha Soe is a Nutrition Specialist for Plan International and a member of the SUN CSA Myanmar.
In this video she talks about the role of the CSA in bringing together not only international NGOs but also an increasing number of local NGOs. The aim of the CSA is to provide a collective voice to all for all these organisations. She reflects on how the CSA is building sub-national CSAs in order to engage and support local CSOs.
