Six Years of Multi-Sectoral Learning from SPRING

Since 2011, SPRING has provided fertile testing ground to put USAID’s Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Strategy into action. You will find a wealth of resources across the SPRING website that capture evidence and experience from SPRING’s diverse country programs and global initiatives .

We have also curated our research and resources here to facilitate learning and uptake of evidence-based programming. You can explore SPRING's impact and key learning below through a collection of resources related to critical nutrition-specific and nutrition sensitive topics below.
