Ranking 181/188 in the Human Development Index, Sierra Leone remains one of the countries with the highest maternal and infant mortality rates. According to the 2014 National Nutrition Survey, the Global Acute Malnutrition, Severe Acute Malnutrition and stunting (chronic malnutrition) rates in Sierra Leone stand at 4.7%, 1.0% and 28.8% respectively. The Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) signed up to various commitments in the context of regional and global movements. As part of the Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G, London, 2013), the GoSL committed to reduce stunting in children under 2 to 11.7% and global acute malnutrition in children under 5 to 2% by 2020 while increasing exclusive breastfeeding to 70%. They also committed to increase funding for nutrition; create budget lines under Ministries of Health and Agriculture; and to ratify the Code of Marketing of Breast-milk substitutes (CMBS).
In May 2016 ACF in Sierra Leone conducted, in cooperation with the local NGO Focus 1000 and the SUN Movement civil society platform, a budget tracking of GoSL expenditure on nutrition from 2012 to 2015, as part of an analysis of the progress made on their commitments at the Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G, London, 2013). This exercise is the very first to be done in the country on nutrition expenditure, and is an effective tool for the government’s accountability on their commitments. This advocacy report budget summarises the findings of this study and presents our recommendations for an improved funding for nutrition in Sierra Leone.
These documents were presented to nutrition stakeholders in Sierra Leone (ministries’ representatives, parliamentarians, UN agencies, donors, civil society) during a workshop organised by ACF for the N4G media event in Rio that took place in Rio (Brazil) on 4th August.
