How can you make a difference?

Under the supervision of the Nutrition Specialist, the consultant will provide technical support to the UNAP Secretariat to effectively coordinate the implementation of the Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Policy and its attendant implementation strategy (UNAP II) at national and decentralized level.

Background

Uganda joined the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement in March 2011. During the same year 2011, the Cabinet under Minute 293 (CT 2011) approved the Uganda Nutrition Action Plan (UNAP) as the Government Strategic Plan for Scaling up Nutrition (SUN). It was also approved that coordination of the UNAP would be carried out by the Office of the Prime Ministe (OPM). The UNAP was extended until 2018 to enable the finalization of the Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Policy and the development of the second UNAP (UNAP II). The UNAP is therefore Uganda’s common results framework for nutrition programming.

Since February 2017, UNICEF has provided support to OPM through a consultant for day to day coordination of the UNAP implementation. During this period, a lot has been achieved in the areas of coordination and partnership, district-level support supervision and monitoring, policy development, district action planning, learning and experience sharing at national and district level and development of capacity building tools for nutrition governance, among other achievements.
