International knowledge network for nutrition in Africa  

Sep. 2, 2014

This initiative builds on a previous EU-funded project SUNRAY (Sustainable Nutrition Research for Africa in the years to come) that showed that knowledge on nutrition needs to be strengthened, formalized, shared, and used as the basis for setting priorities in problem-solving research for nutrition in Africa.

NICE International will contribute its expertise in evidence-based decision making processes and methods. to support the network’s key objective of supporting capacity building in Africa to identify priorities for research and use evidence when formulating policy in the area of nutrition.

The network aims to ‘bridge the gap’ between researchers and decision makers in nutrition policy to help ensure the generation of useful evidence products that have a higher likelihood of being taken up and implemented.
