The ENN is a UK registered charity based in Oxford, UK. The ENN’s purpose is to strengthen the evidence regarding effective nutrition interventions and to use this evidence to inform policy and programming. To do this, the ENN captures and manages knowledge, undertakes research and reviews, runs an online technical forum, facilitates and presents at ENN-led and other international meetings.
Many millions of people around the world are affected by emergencies, the majority of whom are women and children. Among them are many who are known to be living with HIV and others who may not know their HIV status.
A Briefing Note for policy makers and programme implementers
This is a synthesis document that accompanies three case studies carried out by ENN to document nutrition-sensitive and multi-sector programme experiences in several countries, with a focus on the sub-national level. It is done as part of ENN’s work under the Technical Assistance for Nutrition (TAN) programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to support the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement in its second phase (2016-2020).
For the second year running we include a special section that shares key outputs of Action Against Hunger's Research for Nutrition Conference held in November 2016. Elsewhere, experiences are shared including:
•scale up of integrated management of acute malnutrition in Afghanistan
•health systems strengthening in Somalia
•treating acute malnutrition in older people in Ethiopia
•UNHCR experiences of programme monitoring in unstable populations
