POSHAN Partnerships and Opportunities to Strengthen and Harmonise Actions for Nutrition

POSHAN is working to crystallize the evidence base for action on nutrition in India, bring diverse stakeholders together and actively facilitate dialogue, evidence-building, learning and consensus building, with the goal of moving knowledge into practice in diverse contexts within India. POSHAN will build on existing initiatives, action networks, consortia and coalitions, with the primary goal of strengthening evidence-based dialogue and action.


POSHAN has two major objectives: (1) Analyze direct and indirect nutrition-relevantinterventions to generate knowledge on optimal approaches to address major bottlenecks to improve maternal and child nutrition outcomes in India; (2) Mobilize evidence-based and actionable knowledge to inform policy formulation and support program planning for nutrition at the national level and in 3-4 key states.
