CONSULTANCY TO DEVELOP 2-MINUTES VIDEO ON CHANGING THE NIGERIAN MALNUTRITION STORY.

BACKGROUND:

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 implementation of the Partnership for Improving Nigerian Nutrition Systems (PINNS project).

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, for example, 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 reducing and eventually eradicating the scourge. The UNICEF conceptual framework (UNICEF 2013) brings to the fore the need to engage 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.

RATIONALE:

In Nigeria, malnutrition is a significant issue affecting children, families and even the Nigerian economy as a whole. Statistics from the National Demographic Health Survey (NDHS) in 2013 says about 5 million Nigerian children are not exclusively breastfed, exposing them to diseases and death. According to the NDHS, the rate of EBF in Nigeria as at 2013 was 17%. Data released by the Nigerian National Health Survey (NNHS) in 2014 puts the country’s EBF rate at 25%.

With a large population of Nigerian newborns unable to meet their full health potential and susceptible to infections and diseases (due to the non-practice of EBF), the Nigerian economy is at risk. Despite the many nutrition policies, programs and interventions to date, the above statistics demonstrate that there is an urgent need to explore other innovative methods to increase the practice of EBF and promote investments in nutrition.

The poor EBF rates can be attributed to various factors; religious and traditional beliefs, illiteracy, lack of adequate ante-natal care, non-availability of lactating corners in workplaces, non-implementation of policies that promote EBF, poor funding for nutrition interventions and lots more.

Current method of educating Nigerian women about their babies EBF needs is often limited to health visits in hospitals. Developing and disseminating an accessible, enlightening video clip targeting pregnant women, adolescent girls and government will benefit the entire nation. This video will open up a clear picture of EBF successes by communicating ideas in a familiar, concise and non-restrictive way and will draw attention to improving investments in nutrition.
