The Civil Society Scaling-Up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN) is a non-governmental, non-profit alliance, made up of organizations with a shared vision to transform Nigeria into a country where every citizen has food and is nutrition secure. CS-SUNN pursues this lofty goal by engaging government and non-state actors to raise awareness, and sustain commitment and actions to effectively tackle under-nutrition in Nigeria.
CS-SUNN is the Nigerian Civil Society Alliance (CSA) of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) global movement, which was founded on the principle that all people have a right to food and good nutrition. Nigeria joined the global movement in 2011 and the CSA arm (CS-SUNN) was birthed in November 2013 at Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria, and formally inaugurated on the 7th of August, 2014.
The Nigerian CSA geographical mandate is in all 36 states of Nigeria, including the FCT. With a strong presence in Nigeria, CS-SUNN has become a key advocate for Nutrition. We have gained the knack to influence policymakers in Nigeria and with over 300 registered member organizations/partners (even at the grassroots level) spread across the six Geopolitical zones; we bring on ideas that are translated into realities for nutrition interventions.
The Partnership for Improving Nigeria Nutrition Systems (PINNS) is a project designed to strengthen Nigeria's nutrition systems to be more Result-driven, Effective, Serviceable, Efficient, and Transparent (RESET). This is to facilitate the delivery of nutrition interventions and hold the government accountable for commitments to allocate, release, and use transparent funds for implementing high-impact nutrition interventions in Nigeria through evidence-based advocacy.
Several factors, including lack of food, improper feeding and caring practices, economic and political structures, low status, and lack of education among women, etc cause malnutrition in Nigeria. Therefore, a multi-sectoral approach is required to reduce and eventually eradicate the scourge. The UNICEF conceptual framework (UNICEF 2013) brings to the fore the need for multi-actors, disciplines, sectors, and systems in this effort as evidence increasingly suggests that solving malnutrition can benefit from a systems approach (WHO 2009; Hammond & Dube 2012).
PINNS project adopts a systems approach to strengthening bodies and structures burdened with reducing malnutrition in Nigeria. It pays attention to the unpredictable interaction among factors, sectors, disciplines, and determinants of nutrition, bringing to the table key tools and technical support required for the effective coordination and implementation of programs. PINNS seeks to focus on strengthening governance, policy implementation, effective coordination, financing, building the capacity of state actors, generation and effective communication of evidence, and promoting accountability. This collective effort will contribute to reducing malnutrition, thereby improving the nutritional status of Nigerians, particularly women and children.
The rationale for creating a national nutrition dashboard is to provide a comprehensive view of the nutrition status of Nigeria, which can inform policy decisions and interventions aimed at improving public health outcomes. A national nutrition dashboard can monitor the progress of nutrition-related interventions, budgets, and policies in Nigeria. Overall, a national nutrition dashboard will provide policymakers with a powerful tool for improving the nutrition status of Nigeria, which can lead to improved health outcomes, reduced healthcare costs, and increased economic productivity.
World Bank ANRiN project is supporting the development and hosting of the national nutrition dashboard, while CS-SUNN is to train the Virtual Programme Management Team and engage an agency that will manage the system after the development.
