The NIPN initiative, in brief

The added value of the NIPN initiative lays in its unique blend of country-leadership, facilitated inter-sectoral dialogue, and capacity-strengthening to maximise the use of existing information (both quantitative and qualitative) to inform policies. The Global Support Facility has published a short concept note about the NIPN initiative that presents the guiding principles of a National Information Platform for Nutrition, and explains how the initiative intends to support countries in setting up their platform and to build capacity of national stakeholders to design evidence-based policies and programmes.
