The Uganda Nutrition Action Plan (UNAP), a national agenda to improve nutrition, outlines the multi-sectoral nutrition coordination framework including national and district authorities. The overall coordination of nutrition programming under the Nutrition Secratariat in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has established  District Nutrition Coordination Committees (DNCCs) who are expected to provide leadership for sustainable nutrition programming.

They shared their experiences in this poster which was done with support from the Office of Health, Infectious Diseases and Nutrition, Bureau for Global Health, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance III Project (FANTA) and is under the management of FHI 360.
