Commitments

In 2017, Nutrition International made a commitment to support UNFPA to increase the impact of nutrition and family planning interventions for women and adolescent girls. Nutrition International will achieve this by improving service access, achieving program efficiencies, and harnessing the mutually reinforcing nature of sexual and reproductive health and nutrition programming. Nutrition International’s investment of up to CAD $2 million in UNFPA will: reach 500,000 women and girls over two years in Nigeria and Senegal with iron and folic acid and nutrition education and counseling services; leverage UNFPA family planning and maternal health services delivered through government-run clinics and civil society organizations; generate evidence for future scale up through UNFPA programs, which reach 15 million women annually; and support global efforts to reduce iron deficiency anemia, low birth weight, and neural tube defects (SDG 2), and increase access to reproductive health services (SDG 5).

Nutrition International and UNFPA will increase the impact of nutrition and family planning interventions for women and adolescent girls by: improving service access; achieving program efficiencies; and harnessing the mutually reinforcing nature of sexual and reproductive health and nutrition programming.

  • Reach 500,000 women and girls over two years in Nigeria and Senegal with iron and folic acid, and nutrition education and counseling services that have been integrated with family planning interventions
  • Leverage UNFPA family planning and maternal health services delivered through government-run clinics and civil society organizations
