CONSULTANT TO DEVELOP 2018 SOCRECARD ON THE LEVEL OF IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NATIONAL MULTISECTORIAL PLAN OF ACTION FOR NUTRITION (NMSPAN) WITH FOCUS ON IYCF, MATERNAL NUTRITION AND STAPLE FOOD FORTIFICATION.

Background

The Partnership for Improving Nigeria Nutrition Systems (PINNS) is a project designed to strengthen the Nigeria nutrition systems to be more Result-driven, Effective, Serviceable, Efficient and Transparent (RESET). This is to facilitate the delivery of Nutrition interventions and to hold government accountable on commitments made to allocate, release and use transparently funds for implementation of high impact Nutrition interventions in Nigeria through evidence-based advocacy.

Malnutrition in Nigeria is caused by several factors including lack of food, improper feeding and caring practices, economic and political structures, low status and lack of education among women, etc. Therefore, a multi-sectoral approach is required for a reduction and eventual eradication of the scourge. The UNICEF conceptual framework (UNICEF 2013) brings to the fore the need for multi-actors, disciplines, sectors and systems in this effort as evidence increasingly suggests that solving malnutrition can benefit from a systems approach (WHO 2009; Hammond & Dube’ 2012).

PINNS project adopts a systems approach to strengthening bodies burdened with the responsibility of reducing malnutrition in Nigeria. It pays attention to the unpredictable interaction among factors, sectors, disciplines and determinants of nutrition, bringing to the table key tools and technical support required for the effective coordination and implementation of programs. PINNS seeks to focus on strengthening governance, policy implementation, effective coordination, financing, building the capacity of state actors, generation and effective communication of evidence and promoting accountability. This collective effort will contribute to a reduction in malnutrition, thereby improving the nutritional status of Nigerians, particularly women and children. The organizational capacity of CS-SUNN to become a leading voice on nutrition advocacy in Nigeria by deepening expertise gained from the Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health (PACFaH) project and building new ones is also one of the goals the project intends to achieve.

 

Rationale

As an advocacy tool, the PINNS project intends to develop a scorecard to measure the level of implementation of the NSPAN. The scorecard to be developed is to use the most up to date evidence to assess policy actions at National and state levels in a manners that policy makers will understand and be willing to take actions that will address the challenges PINNS is out to address. Results from the scorecard will be promote accountability, enhance advocacy and engender healthy competition among the PINNS focal states as they share best practices to improve on the state-specific identified gaps.
