Sierra Leone

Nutrition for growth progress assessment


In order to fight the threat malnutrition represents to the development of the country, the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) has over the last decade made great strides towards addressing this issue by signing up to various commitments in the context of regional and global movements. As part of the Nutrition for Growth Summit (London, 2013 – N4G Summit), the GoSL committed to reduce stunting to 11.7% and wasting to 2% by 2020 while increasing exclusive breastfeeding to 70%. They also committed to increase funding for nutrition; create budget lines under Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS), Ministry of Agriculture Forestry and Food Security (MAFFS) and other line ministries; and to ratify the Code of Marketing of Breast-milk substitutes (CMBS).

In May 2016 Action Contre la Faim (ACF) and FOCUS 1000, in collaboration with the SUN Movement conducted an analysis on progress made so far in Sierra Leone regarding commitments taken at the N4G Summit. This work included budget tracking of government expenditure on nutrition from 2012 to 2015, as part of the analysis of the financial commitments. This exercise is the very first to be done in the country on nutrition expenditure, and is an effective tool for government’s accountability on their commitments. These analyses have been summarized into two reports that comprise recommendations for the way forward.

On the 4th  of August2016, as an international media event goes on in Rio (Brazil) within the framework of the second N4G Summit, ACF and Focus 1000, in collaboration with the SUN Movement, are holding a workshop to present and discuss the results of this analysis. The Nutrition for Growth Progress Assessment Workshop will provide the civil society and all partners from government, donors and UN agencies, the opportunity to discuss the main findings and recommendations of the N4G commitments analyses done in May 2016, and come up with concrete action plans for the way forward.
