Analysing Nutrition Governance: Zambia Country Report

Published on 27 March 2012

Zambia is one of the 36 countries with more than 20 per cent stunting rates which formed the focus of the Lancet Nutrition Series on the effects of nutrition interventions (Bhutta et al 2008).

The WHO’s landscape analysis on nutrition (WHO 2009) assessed its level of nutrition governance as ‘medium’, taking into account the priority given to nutrition in its PRSP, UNDAF and Nutrition Governance Indicators. The same report also noted that Zambia was making ‘insufficient progress’ toward MDG1 on nutrition.
