Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Coordination Committee Orientation Package


The Office of the Prime Minister, with support from USAID’s Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance III Project (FANTA), developed the Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Coordination Committee Orientation Package (Guide for Facilitators, Participant Handbook, and accompanying slides) to assist stakeholders in establishing and operationalizing multi-sectoral nutrition coordination committees (NCCs) in Uganda.

This orientation package is intended to strengthen the capacity of nutrition coordination structures at the local government level by providing information on the nutrition situation and the policy environment for addressing malnutrition in Uganda. The package also covers the roles of and linkages between NCCs, technical planning committees (TPCs), and local government councils and provides guidance on the monitoring and reporting NCCs will conduct on multi-sectoral nutrition interventions.

The guide was developed through a consultative process with national and local governments and stakeholders, including the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), USAID’s Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) Project, USAID’s Community Connector Project, and USAID’s Communication for Healthy Communities Project (CHC).
