Progress with the governance of nutrition work in Jigawa State

Published on 1 March 2016

In Jigawa in 2014, the global acute malnutrition (GAM) rate stood at 17.7% – the highest in Nigeria (NNHS 2014). Nigeria signed up to the Scaling-up Nutrition (SUN) movement in 2011, committing itself to tackling its high rates of child malnutrition.

Achieving this objective requires significant political commitment and government funding at both the state and federal levels. It also requires effective coordination and implementation of nutrition work, and civil society and community engagement. This briefing reviews these aspects of nutrition-sector governance, which are supported by the DFID-funded programme WINNN in Jigawa state.
