UNICEF Sierra Leone Report

UNICEF Sierra Leone 

The UNICEF Nutrition Programme utilized a multi-pronged strategy

1) Advocacy and Policy Change (nutrition policy framework),

2) Improved Data Systems and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Reporting,

3) SAM Treatment,

4) Supplemental Food Supply Management, and

5) Social Mobilisation – IYCF counseling and community engagement to change behavior.

Program objectives were to improve the quality of treatment, ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) supply chain, feeding practices at the community level, and coordination with nutrition partners. This report breaks these UNICEF strategies into five basic categories, which are in line with the UNICEF log frame and designed to address the program objectives.
