Progress with the governance of nutrition work in Katsina

Published on 1 March 2016

In Katsina, child stunting rates stand at 59.7% – the highest in Nigeria and well above the national average of 32% (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 Katsina state.
