Nepal~^!!^s scaling-up nutrition initiative technical assistance (SUNITA) : Nepal's scaling-up nutrition initiative technical assistance (SUNITA) (English)

Over the past two decades, Nepal has achieved economic growth and improvements in social and health indicators. However, the poor nutritional status of first, women, manifested in a low body mass index, and second, children, seen in low birth weights, underweight, stunting, and wasting, has not shown much improvement over this period. The Nepal's scaling-up nutrition initiative technical assistance (SUNITA) fund started at the suggestion of Government of Australia~^!!^s department of foreign affairs and trade (DFAT) to provide technical support in the form of analytical work, evaluations of interventions, and technical assistance to target actions that effectively address gaps in nutrition interventions. SUNITA complements the South Asia food and security initiative (SAFANSI) trust fund, which was established in 2010 to address the South Asian enigma - how chronic malnutrition remains intractable despite high economic growth. The ultimate objective of SAFANSI is to increase the commitment of governments and development partners in pursuing more effective and integrated food and nutrition-related policies and investments. SUNITA will increase the commitment of governments and development partners to more effectively integrate food and nutrition-related policies and investments.
