GNC Technical Alliance Conversations on how programmes are adapting in light of COVID -19: Exploring the use of FamilyMUAC with Anley Haile, GOAL Ethiopia

By Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) Technical Alliance (formerly GTAM) on 8 July 2020

As the COVID response shifts and people are wanting to understand more how programmes are being adapted, ENN, as part of its work within the GNC Technical Alliance mechanism, has been reflecting on how best to share such information and capture stories from country level responses. Reflecting on the fact that everyone’s time is stretched at the moment, we realise that opportunities to document such adaptations (and for targeted audience members to have time to read and reflect on such documentation) are very limited. As a result, we are putting together a series of ‘connecting conversations’ in which programmers can reflect broadly what approaches they are currently taking- what is working well and what have the challenges been along the way (very much taking into account that we are all taking a ‘learning by doing’ approach to current programme shifts) so that others can hear and learn from such experiences. 

In this podcast, we speak to Anley Haile, GOAL Ethiopia’s Head of Integrated Programmes in Ethiopia. Anley shares his experiences of working with the Ethiopian Government to explore how the FamilyMUAC approach can be used as a programme adaptation in light of COVID-19.
