Mozambique: EU Supporting Measures to Improve Nutrition

The European Union has agreed to provide Mozambique with 30 million euros (about 37 million US dollars) to support the campaign for improved nutrition over the next four years. The drive to combat chronic malnutrition is being undertaken by the Ministry of Health through the National Health Institute (INS). Geert Anckaert, the head of operations in the Economic Development and Governance section of the EU delegation in Maputo, announced the financing on Thursday, during the launch of a project to assess nutrition programmes and policies. This project seeks to compile and analyse data on maternal, infant and child health, to assess the effectiveness of health and nutrition programmes. Anckaert told reporters that, for the EU, “it is very important to support the government in implementation of its nutrition strategy. We are supporting the government in implementing the national plan to reduce malnutrition. We shall also look at specific interventions in the areas of nutrition, water and sanitation.
