Hello, Wezi Kalumbu Health Specilist RMNCH Malawi
Based on my experience on an integrated nutrition project in Nepal, sometimes motivating ministries to work together may be easier than expected. For example, the ministry of agriculture had almost always worked to promote the production of large livestock. When we explained why small livestock are critical to improving the daily diets of families, they were motivated to work collaboratively with the MOH to support nutrition.
Such a great point, Kirk!
Can you put the framework back on the screen please?
I like it! Communication! Conflict management! Building trust and legitimacy!
Yes, it is a useful and clear framework but sometimes, the shared motivation is subjective, especially in our setting.
Governance is closely linked to leadership, how does the paper connect the two, sorry if I missed that.
The other hinderance if one sector is not with a health background, that sector may not see the possible outcome
Yeah it works,we have implemented in quality of Labour room & OT & also in Anaemia
Yes, many of these strategies are being used in the USAID Advancing Nutrition Project in Kenya. We have nutrition champions for each sector, nutrition, ag and social protection. And we have multi sectoral nutrition score cards which have indicators that are being monitored for each sector. And finally financial tracking is being done for each county by sector.
The key strategies to govern multisectoral action are applicable to our local situation, Uganda. We had a multisectoral engagement during preparations, mass vaccination-measles-rubella, and evaluation of the campaign. Most those strategies were used
