  • Rationale

 

The Civil Society Scaling-Up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN) is a non-governmental, non-profit making coalition, made up of organizations with a shared vision to transform Nigeria into a country where every citizen has food and is nutrition secured. CS-SUNN pursues this lofty goal by engaging and mobilizing Government and Non-state actors to advocate for relevant policy implementation, raise awareness, generate evidence, build capacity and stimulate communities to scale-up nutrition in Nigeria, with special focus on maternal and child nutrition. The organizational capacity of CS-SUNN to become a leading voice on nutrition advocacy in Nigeria led to the SUN Movement Pooled Fund Project.

 

Over the last 10 years, the government of Nigeria has never budgeted or spent up to the African Union proposed 15% of national budget on Health which Nigeria is a signatory to and the 1% consolidated revenue fund designed to operationalize the 2014 National Health Act was still not captured in the 2017 budget 3 years after. Government funding for nutrition in the country has also been abysmal especially on high impact interventions like IYCF, Maternal Nutrition and staple food fortification, as shown in the 2018 budget submitted to the House of Assembly, where a paltry sum of 30 million naira was proposed. The need to generate evidence that clearly shows whether government spending on such key interventions are adequate or not and also if allocated funds for both health and nutrition are released as at when due, utilized judiciously for what they are meant for as captured in the appropriation acts of each project location, is germane to improving the health and nutritional status of Nigerians, a core prayer of the Pooled Fund Project.

 

It is important that a concise and pictorial description of the issue of low health budgeting and its implication for health/nutrition in Nigeria be produced. This will provide respective legislators and other stakeholders in project locations a better understanding of where we are at as against where we ought to be in relation to funding for health and nutrition.

 

To this effect, CS-SUNN requires the services of a well experienced expert to collect budgets and budget performance information from 2015 to 2018, analyze and come up with a comprehensive report and budget infographics for use as evidence to engage in advocacy and campaigns. The analysis will look at funding trends, nutrition funding, legal implications of poor funding, compare focal states budget for nutrition and come up with smart recommendations.
