It is now the opportune time for country and international actors to converge to identify key barriers and opportunities for implementation of a comprehensive set of nutrition interventions for sick and/or undernourished children, in primary health care settings, including the community settings. With support from USAID-Washington, the maternal and child survival program (MCSP) proposes to convene a workshop to bring together stakeholders and partners from countries to discuss challenges and promising approaches to improve the implementation of a comprehensive set of nutrition interventions for sick and/or undernourished children. The three-day workshop, planned for the Summer of 2018, seeks to translate global and country learning into specific actions to improve nutrition and child health services, and ultimately child health programming, in selected countries and at the global level. International partners have expressed interest in collaborating on shaping the technical content of the workshop and potentially co-sponsoring the workshop and/or international and country participation.
