Welcome to the Nigerian Nutrition Sector Website!

The Nutrition Sector is a forum open to all humanitarian actors (Government institutions, agencies, international and national government organizations) committed to supporting the emergency nutrition response in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states. We welcome those partners who are willing to actively engage in strengthening the capacity of nutrition in Nigeria, as well as contribute to the strategic priorities and targets of the Nigerian Nutrition sector, while adhering to relevant nutrition guidelines/policies that meet acceptable minimum standards within the different and ever-evolving contexts of Northeast Nigeria.

With Nutrition Sector leadership provided by the Federal Ministry of Health, aims to improve the nutrition situation of vulnerable children and women in the conflict states. Collaboratively, we aim to accomplish this through; strategic planning, data collection and information management, mobilization of resources for nutrition programs, ensuring accountability, and orchestrating a functional division of labor.
