“ZimNA spearheading evidence based nutrition practice through collaborative partnerships”

Introduction & Background

In Zimbabwe malnutrition is still affecting infants, young children and women and presenting as one or more forms of under nutrition, including low birth weight, stunting, anaemia, underweight, wasting, Vitamin A deficiency, and Iodine deficiency disorders (MoHCC, 2014). Obesity and nutrition related non-communicable diseases are also on the increase with a high prevalence of overweight and obesity in young children and women.

At global level, nutrition is gaining recognition as a vehicle for social development; however, Africa is still behind in terms of development, one of the many reasons is poor nutrition. According to the global nutrition report of 2015 (IFPRI, 2015), for children under 5 years of age 161 million of them were stunted, 51 million are wasted, and 42 million were overweight. In Africa, the prevalence of malnutrition is high, and despite several interventions there is little, if any, evidence of any meaningful improvement in nutritional status of women and children (Gillespie et al., 2013; Ruel & Alderman, 2013).
