NEX 9 : Catalysing nutrition scale-up through technical assistance, Part I

By ENN on 30 January 2018

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.

The coordinators discuss the role of TA in supporting country led initiatives in nutrition, and refer to some of the learning and experiences that came out of specific TAs delivered through TAN in 2017 in the Philippines (Nutrition International) and Tajikistan (MQSUN+). This podcast complements an article co-written by the TA providers and published in NEX 9 entitled “A catalyst for scale-up in SUN countries: Experiences of technical assistance for Tajikistan and the Philippines”.

To hear more please listen to Part II in which we talk more specifically about the TAs delivered in the Philippines and Tajikistan with the head of the Regional NI-TAN team in Asia and a lead consultant for MQSUN+ in Tajikistan.

For more information about the NI technical assistance, please email: TechnicalAssistance@NutritionIntl.org
