USAID’s Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Strategy (MSNS) provides a roadmap to elevate and integrate nutrition as a priority for all of the agency’s work to support countries to achieve these goals.

This briefing paper is intended to complement USAID’s assessment of the MSNS. It highlights both successes and challenges identified in our interviews and field research, and it offers recommendations for sustaining and strengthening the impact of the Strategy on progress toward the 2025 global nutrition targets and the 2030 goal to end malnutrition in all its forms.
