Contributing to a National Advocacy and Communication Strategy in Uganda

In Uganda, we worked with the Ugandan government, UN agencies, and USAID implementing partners to develop the National Advocacy and Communication Strategy in support of the Uganda Nutrition Action Plan, under the auspices of the UNAP Secretariat in the Office of the Prime Minister. Because this is a national strategy, different partners have taken responsibility for implementing different parts of the strategy based on their relative capacities. SPRING’s role is to develop a national radio campaign that will help caregivers protect growth during the first 1,000 days of life and that will promote healthy Ugandan diets; this will be achieved, in part, by encouraging the consumption of local, fresh foods.
