Event Details

Over the past few years there has been a significant increase in the number of MNP programs. Data from the UNICEF Nutridash surveillance system shows that in 2015, 66 countries were implementing 73 MNP interventions--up from 43 countries in 2013.

With this increase, there has been an increased demand for technical resources to plan and implement MNP programs. In response, the HF-TAG has developed a toolkit, now available on its website.

Technical Advisors Aashima Garg (UNICEF, New York), Claudia Schauer (SickKids Centre of Global Child Health, Toronto), and Katie Tripp (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta) provide an overview of the MNP Toolkit including a demonstration on how to navigate the toolkit. They will also highlight some of the toolkit's tools and features. Following the presentation, there will be time for interaction and discussion to answer any questions and receive comments and feedback from participants.
