SPRING is dedicated to strengthening global and country efforts to scale up high-impact nutrition practices and policies. SPRING provides state-of-the-art technical support focused on preventing stunting and maternal and child anemia in the first 1,000 days, linking agriculture and nutrition, and creating social change and behavior change through communication. SPRING’s mission supports two major U.S. Government initiatives: Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths and Feed the Future.
SPRING is a leader in the field of global nutrition, contributing to the existing evidence base and managing knowledge that improves nutrition outcomes through research, analysis, and information sharing.
SPRING also provides country-specific support to strengthen national nutrition programs and improve nutritional outcomes at the country level. Working with the USAID’s mission and government entities, SPRING supports direct implementation or provision of technical assistance to build capacity and catalyze partnerships at the national, district, and community levels.
SPRING also supports the implementation of USAID’s Multisectoral Nutrition Strategy, provides technical assistance to the U.S. Feed the Future initiative, and contributes to USAID’s goal of ending preventable child and maternal deaths.
The Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) Project is a five-year USAID-funded Cooperative Agreement to strengthen global and country efforts to scale up high impact nutrition practices and policies and improve maternal and child nutrition. The project is managed by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., with partners Helen Keller International, the Manoff Group, Save the Children, and the International Food Policy Research Institute.
