The Nutrition Cluster was activated in Bangladesh in 2007 to respond to cyclone Sidr though currently it is focused on providing support to the government of Bangladesh in the coordination of effective emergency preparedness and response to humanitarian crisis, that meets core commitments and standards.

The Nutrition cluster in Bangladesh is jointly led by UNICEF and the Institute of Public Health Nutrition (IPHN), National Nutrition Services (NNS), under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW). Both actors share equal responsibilities and work together in partnership as co-leads.  

The Nutrition Cluster has established a Strategic Advisory Group in 2016 in order to enable decision-making on behalf of the larger group through representation of stakeholder groups.
