Cost Analysis of Strategic Nutrition Intervention Packages


The problem of malnutrition has become a global public health problem. It has repercussions on intellectual development, academic performance thus compromising the ambitions of our States to become emerging.
Faced with this situation, the states have committed themselves through joining the SUN movement to increase investments in order to raise the level of the indicators.
In Côte d'Ivoire, the State's commitment has resulted in the establishment of a multisectoral framework and the adoption of a multisectoral plan covering the period 2016-2020.
As part of the implementation of this plan, the Ivorian Government benefits from financial support from the EU and technical support from UNICEF to set up an efficient system for collecting information on nutrition. . This initiative aims to strengthen national capacities to collect and analyze information and data from all sectors concerned with nutrition in order to guide decision-making and investments in nutrition.
To this end, the National Multisectoral Information Platform for Nutrition (PNMIN) has been in place since 2018 and is functional to date.
In addition, after the review of the PNMN 2016-2020, it appeared the need to prioritize interventions, to better quantify them in order to ensure effective monitoring of funding for nutrition.
Thus, a C4N consultant conducted training in the use of the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) for the benefit of members of the PNMIN Project Management Unit (PMU) and sectoral partners in June-July 2021. At the end of this training, the participants developed 6 packages of high-impact nutritional interventions to guide decision-makers in the process of developing the next multisectoral nutrition plan.
In order to better analyze each scenario of the intervention packages and to guide their consideration in the decision-making process, the PNMIN has once again requested the support of C4N-NIPN for additional training coupled with the calculation of the costs of each of these 6 packages of interventions drawn up and validated at the national level.
To this end, a workshop was held on March 8 or 11, 2022 in Grand Bassam, Côte d'Ivoire, to estimate the costs of strategic intervention packages to reduce malnutrition.
