Nutrition International at the 2017 SUN Movement Global Gathering

Nutrition International is pleased to be participating in the 2017 SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) Movement Global Gathering, being held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from November 7-9, 2017.

Nutrition International will be represented at the event by staff working under NTEAM (Nutrition Technical Assistance Mechanism), including members of the Technical Assistance for Nutrition (TAN) team. TAN is designed to improve the capacity of SUN countries to design, deliver, and track the progress of nutrition programs and to generate, learn from and adapt knowledge of what works. Funded by UK aid from the Government of the United Kingdom, this project is being implemented in partnership with the SUN Movement Secretariat (SMS), Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) and MQSUN+.
