GNC Technical Alliance Conversations on how programmes are adapting in light of COVID -19: An interview with Dr. Kabir Ibrahim

By Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) Technical Alliance (formerly GTAM) on 3 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 Dr. Kabir Ibrahim, Executive Secretary for the Primary HealthCare Development Agency for Jigawa State in Northern Nigeria and current Technical Lead for COVID-19 operations for the State. Dr. Kabir highlights how COVID-19 is affecting routine nutrition services in the State, what challenges are being faced and some of the specific adaptations, he and his colleagues have put in place in relation to the treatment of malnourished children.
