In January 2016, SPRING, along with USAID's Bureau for Food Security and Bureau for Global Health, hosted the West Africa MSN-GLEE (Multi-sectoral Nutrition Strategy Global Learning & Evidence Exchange) workshop in Accra, Ghana. Staff from the USAID Bureau for Food Security, Bureau for Global Health, USAID Missions in West Africa, implementing partners, and host country governments shared their experiences and research, enabling widespread engagement across the countries and improving understanding of emerging concepts.
Experts in agriculture, economic growth, WASH, nutrition, and health programs gave presentations and led interactive sessions on a range of topics designed to strengthen country-led efforts to improve nutrition. USAID’s Multi-sectoral Nutrition Strategy and accompanying technical guidance briefs formed the basis for an exciting agenda comprised of 23 sessions designed to help participants identify places where multi-sectoral nutrition programming approach can be strengthened.
