SUN Business Network - Mozambique

By ENN on 6 November 2017

This is an interview with Katia Santos Dias, the Country Director for GAIN in Mozambique and co-convenor of the Mozambique SUN Business Network (SBN). In this interview, Katia discusses the role of the private sector in nutrition and what priorities the SUN Business Network in Mozambique have had since it was founded in early 2016. Katia shares that the private sector can play a number of different roles in tackling all forms of malnutrition at global and national level along with other stakeholders. This includes producing nutritious food, participating in awareness and nutrition education, and supporting national nutrition policy such as school feeding.

She also discusses the potential inherent in the private sector working more closely with nutrition stakeholders, such as their ability to provide technical assistance in food fortification, and to identify new investment opportunities. Katia also touches on some of the challenges faced such as access to information and “nutrition jargon” hindering the participation of business.
