Civil Society Scaling-up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN), a non-profit coalition, made up of organizations with a shared vision to transform Nigeria into a country where every citizen has food and  adequate nutrition has introduced a multi-sectoral project tagged Partnership for Improving Nigeria Nutrition Systems (PINNS) at a Media Roundtable in Abuja yesterday.

Speaking at the Project Inception Media Roundtable, Beatrice Eluaka, Executive Secretary, CS-SUNN who delivered welcome address on behalf of the Secretary General, Yinka Lawal stated that PINNS is a project designed to strengthen the Nigeria nutrition systems to be more Result-driven, Effective, Serviceable, Efficient and Transparent (RESET).

development, increase severity of diseases which adversely affects productivity in Nigeria.

She added that there are immediate and underlying causes of malnutrition – immediate cause could be through inadequate nutrients from the food intake in a home and underlying causes could be inadequate access to food itself due to socio-economic factors such as prevalent poverty, unemployment, high cost of food items amongst others.

“As a result of lingering and prevalent cases of malnutrition across the country, The 2017 Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) puts stunting rate at 43.6 per cent as against 32.9 per cent in 2015, wasting in 2017 at 10.8 per cent as against 7.2percent in 2015 and Underweight at 31.5 percent  in 2017 as against 19.4 percent  in 2015, said Eluaka.

“Currently PINNS project is set to deliver on its mandate in five states namely; Kano, Kaduna, Niger, Lagos and Nasarawa states in Nigeria, although there are other projects related to nutrition that CS-SUNN is currently implementing across the 36 states of the six geo-political zones in Nigeria, through which we hope to gradually tackle the challenge of ineffective coordination of nutrition activities and actors at the national and sub-national levels said Sunday Okoronkwo, Programme Officer, CS-SUNN.

Okoronkwo added that PINNS project will contribute to a reduction in malnutrition particularly among women and children in Nigeria as is focused on strengthening governance, policy implementation, effective coordination, financing, building the capacity of state actors, generation and effective communication of evidence as promoting accountability.
